In the first three chapters of his book, Milliman charts the history of Pomerelia as a frontier, its place in the internal politics of Poland and the role of the Teutonic Order in the Christianisation of the region and their subsequent takeover of the subjugated territories.
Milliman avoids the tendency among some historians to treat the antagonism between Poland and the Order as the expression of primarily national differences between the 'Poles' and 'Germans' that has cast a long shadow on the complicated history of Pomerelia as a contested region.
Chapter 1 narrates Pomerelias emergence as a political entity separate from that of Western Pomerania and Prussia, and for a time independent of Poland.
