Summary É White Eagle Red Star The Polish Soviet War 1919 20 Í PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Most crucial conflicts of the Western world Drawing on both Polish and Russian sources Norman Davies shows how this war was a pivotal event in the course of European history. This is the history of a little known war between the new Soviet state and the first free Poland state in several centuries Unlike WWI in the West this was a war of movement rather than static trench warfare This was a peculiar war in which there were still huge cavalry engagement between Poles and Russians Ironically tanks and aircraft were also involved in the fighting Often times many assume the post WWI map of Europe was purely the result of the Versailles Treaty but there were many ongoing smaller wars in Eastern Europe by these new born states that changed truth on the ground and adjusted boundaries For example had this war ended 6 months earlier than it did Vilnius would have been a Polish town instead of the capital of LithuaniaThis book was particularly strong handling the diplomatic aspects of the war between Russia and Poland but it also added insights about how the French and British played diplomatically Their support for Poland was not uneuivocal Also the author s strategic analysis was insightful but he was confusing on the tactical operational aspectsThe author concludes that had Poland lost the war that would have greatly affected future history of Europe as Russia would have rolled over Europe I think that is a bit of a stretch as the Russians weary from war needed to consolidate within the former Russian hinterland This book was published in 1972 so he might have found differently if written after the collapse of the USSR
