  Benzol: I couldn't find Lwow in my atlas but here's a link to info about the city.
Mar-19-05  nikolaas: <benzol> Perhaps you shuld search for Lvov.

  Benzol: <nikolass> The idea did occur to me but I didn't think Poland extended that far into the Ukraine in 1917.
Dec-23-05  EmperorAtahualpa: <Benzol> I don't mean to be picky here, but back then it was not a matter of "Poland extending into Ukraine". The whole territory was in dispute at the time....

We might just as well speak of Ukraine extending into what should be Poland!

Dec-23-05  Koster: There is book about that called I believe "Fire on the Steppe" by Henryk Sienkiewicz, describes war between Poles and Ukranians.

  brankat: Further to the above, a couple of things that come to mind:

-- United we stand, divided we fall.

-- "Divide et impera."
