Russians were sabotaged by the numerous ethnic German officers in their military, most notably Rennenkampf.

No small reason for the 1917 Revolution.

Yes, Well it is true that Germany with Bethman from a prominent Jewish banker family had promoted sending the train of Bolsheviks in 1917 to Russia which essentially divided & conquered Russia to be taken out of WW1 in the treaty of Brest-Litovsk.

Poland's top computer specialists have proven themselves to be among the very best in the world over the last few years, helping Polish universities to outperform international rivals from wealthier countries in some of the most prestigious global IT competitions.

At the time of writing, Poland was ranked third in computer programing competition administrator TopCoder's country rankings, having previously held the top spot. At present, only Russia and China are ranked higher.

d. Of the top 100 individual coders ranked, 15 are Polish.

Earlier in June, a team from Jagiellonian University in Kraków won third prize at the ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest in Orlando. There were representatives of 2,070 schools at the tournament. The University of Warsaw won the contest in 2007.

Lydia Mazzie, Google's Head of Central and Eastern European Operations, said:"In our coding competitions we have more Polish winners than any other nationality. That's why we now have three offices in Poland, that's a lot for us, in any country."

Deborah Magid, from IBM said that the US computer giant has a very successful development center in Poland and is expanding its operations. Seweryn Krajewski, a director at Siemens, said his company has had a lot of success with its large development center in Poland.

Poland's highly educated workforce is the draw for the tech giants. Plus it has a very strong math tradition which helped Poland crack the German military's Enigma code machines.

Brits and French men have seen the reality, fall of paris in 1940, bombardment of Britain in 1940, and u know what would happen if Japan didn't attack to the US, you would be defeated dear!, and Little Britain knows that its survival in Napoleonic wars and in two world wars was because of Three things:
1.Its an island
2.Help and donations of the USA
3.Entrance of the USA in both wars
despite, they would be defeated in Napoleonic wars too,
AND know this: IN BATTLE of WATERLOO if Blucher the German ,hadn't come, Britain couldn't defeat France in Waterloo, and fall of PARIS in 1814 , was by GERMANS
AND u know that world is beholden to Germans in many things, in science, technology, in philosophy,... and u know without help of Germans you couldn't send your astronomer to the space and surpass from the USA !! HA HA HA. you r just making jokes for our laughter!

DEAR ,words are sometimes absolutely precious, if there were not words, there would be no knowledge and learning, you have to learn by words not by experience ,because our lifetime is so short to experience everything which can be learned by words! so claim that u don't have any answer or you don't know how to use words!
Long live Germany! long live France, England, Russia, and all human being! and down with war!

What? The first and the only unit which put any fight in Paris in 1814 were Russian royal Guards of general Ermolov.
