Discrimination of American Historians
by Francis Casimir Kajencki
From the Preface:
"On retiring from the army in 1973, I took up the researching and writing of American History. This effort led me into contact with civilian historians and editors. The instances of discrimination against Poles became more numerous and visible in their published works. I could analyze their biased writing against primary source data and point out misstatements, omissions of key data, and refute falsehoods.
Discordant Trumpet covers discrimination found in the published works of those American historians with whom I came in contact. I believe the number would have been larger had I conducted further research. The following chapters deal with historical events and my central figures."
