FREE READ Õ White Eagle Red Star The Polish Soviet War 1919 20 Of victory and pledged to carry the Revolution across Europe was crushed by a devastating Polish attack Since known as “The Miracle of the Vistula” it remains one of the. White Eagle Red Star is one of four books written by Norman Davies thathave dramatically altered the way Westerners and Poles have come to view the history of Poland The other three are God s Playground Rising 44 and Microcosm This succinct volume tells how Josef Pilsudki recreated Poland after 125 years in which it had been partitioned between Austria Germany and Russia He then defended it against a communist invasion from RussiaPilsudski is venerated in Poland as the founder of the modern state In the west he has been accorded scant respect and wrongly accused of many sins that he was entirely innocent of Pilsudki was born into a minor noble family in was now part of Lithuania He started his career as a communist where he showed a great deal of skill providing funds for the Russian communist party by robbing trains Unfortunately he was close enough to Lenin s brother that when an assassination attempt was made on the Tsar Pilsudski was sentenced to five years of internment in SiberiaAfter his internment Pilsudski organized a regiment that fought int he Austrian army on the Eastern Front Pilsudski was no longer a communist by this point but he retained resolutely socialist and atheistic ideas all his life which was uite unusual for a Polish nobleman Pilsudski had come to the conclusion that a common front of Poles from the entire political spectrum was needed to recreate Poland When Austria surrendered Germany asked him to swear allegiance to the Kaiser and join the fight against Russia When Pilsudsk refused he was jailed However he was released several months later when Germany surrendered In a startling manoeuvre he persuaded the Germans to give him the weapons from their arsenal in the city where he was jailed The Germans agreed and within days Pilsudki had an army with which to carve out a state in the territories of the three occupying powers that had just fallenPilsudski had seized most of the Ukraine before the Russians counter attacked in early 1920 The Russians wanted to first subdue Poland and then continue driving West so as to link up with the communists who had begun insurrections in Germany However in August 1920 the Russians were stopped at Warsaw in a battle that the Poles refer to as the Miracle on the Vistula Pilsudski than launched a counteroffensive which in turn stalled in the Ukraine At this point the Russians and Poles signed a treaty to end their war and which settled their boundaries until WWIIIn this remarkable book Davies demolishes several mythes about Pilsudki notably 1 Myth 1 Pilsudski as a fascist The reality was that Pilsudski did rule as a autocrat but his political agenda was socialist He staunchly defended Poland s Jewish population through out his life 2 Myth 2 Pilsudski was pro German The reality was that Pilsudski believed that in the long term Russia was a bigger threat to Poland s independence than Germany and thus he made opportunistic deals with the Germans 3 Myth 3 Pilsudski was an irresponsible adventurer The truth is that Pilsudski was opportunistic and very lucky that the regimes of all three powers occupying Poland fell at the same time In his campaigns Pilsudki commanded in a very competent fashion never taking greater risks that the relative strengths of his army and the Russian army warranted 4 Myth 4 The French volunteer officers who served with the Poles at the Battle of Warsaw were responsible for the Poliish Victory In fact De Gaulle Weygand and the other French volunteers never made any such claim for themselves and lauded Pilsudski as the mastermind of the Victory 5 Myth 5 The revival of Polish State was the result of Woodrow Wilson s doctrine of the self determination of nations The reality is Treaty of Versailles did not allocate any territory to Poland that was not being occupied by Pilsudki s army In fact under the Treaty of Versailles the Poles were forced to conduct a referendum in Silesia which ultimately forced them to return most of Silesia to GermanyIn Davies view Poland was recreated solely because Pilsudski and his soldiers successfully fought for it They got no significant help and much hostility from the WestWhite Eagle Red Star is an absolutely essential book for anyone wishing to understand today s Poland and is a great read for World I history buffs The volunteer have come to view the Sweet and
