    Reading Timothy Snyder's "Bloodlands" a few years ago, I got the clear impression that the Soviets feared Poland (as they also feared Japan, until September, 1939). Poland's success culturally and militarily in the various conflicts you have touched on, go along way to explaining that "fear".
    Thanks,
    MM
