N.K.N. Correspondence with the Polish Legions
The N.K.N., also known as the Supreme National Committee, was formed in the summer of 1914 and based in Kraków. Its purpose was to serve as the main political representation of the Poles, which it succeeded in doing until 1917. It replaced the Komisja Tymczasowa Skonfederowanych Stronnictw Niepodległościowych and the Centralny Komitet Narodowy. Its downfall is greatly connected to its pro-Austrain stance, which caused it to lose support toward the end of the war.
