Prince: Thaddeus Kosciuszko and the Age of Revolution (Thomas Dunne Books;
April 28, 2009). He recounted the life of Thaddeus Kosciuszko, a lifelong
champion of the common man and woman. He was a Polish-Lithuanian immigrant to
the United States
who became a engineer in the Continental Army. He was responsible for the
fortifications for Philadelphia and devised
battle plans that led to the American victory at Saratoga. Following the war, Kosciuszko
returned to Poland
and became commander in chief of the Polish Army where he led a defense against
a Russian invasion and later a revolt of Russian occupation in 1794. Mr.
Storozynski accompanied his talk with slides. After his presentation, he
responded to questions from members of the audience. The event was hosted by
the Polish Embassy in Washington,

  Alex Storozynski is the executive director and
president of the Kosciuszko Foundation. A Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist,
he was formerly a contributing editor to The New York Sun and was an editorial
board member at the New York Daily News.
