Languages of publication
In Poland there are to be found, apart from numerous monuments o f Polish fortifications, also some interesting instances o f foreign defence systems. These include Prussian fortifications o f the 18th century, the Napoleonic ones o f the early 19th, Russian, German and Austrian o f the late 19th and early 20th century and the Soviet and German defences dating from the Second World War. They represent, not infrequently, high standards o f engineering and architecture, their value exceeding the national scale of significance. The Conservator General of Historical Monuments appointed, in September 1976, a Committee on the Problems of Protection and Conservation o f the Monuments of Military Engineering and Architecture. The members o f the Committee are representatives o f the Ministry o f Culture and Art, Ministry of National Defence and experts in the fields concerned. The aim of the Committee is setting this complex question in order, due to initiation o f large- scale surveys in various spheres, archival research and field work indispensable to synthetic studies which will provide for concentration o f means an d efforts on preservation of the most valuable o f those monuments and protection of the remaining ones.
