It is precisely because of the Poles' success in preventing a Bolshevik victory and Europe's preoccupation with postwar recovery that the Battle of Warsaw was overlooked and quickly forgotten. Hoping for another good read, I put it on hold and went to pick it up a week or so later. Germany was on the verge of revolution itself, and Lenin hoped to ensure that Germany would become a springboard for the Soviet conquest of the rest of Europe. My real problem with this book is not the idea that if successful the Bolsheviks might have taken their revolution abroad, or that some wanted this from the start, but that the author is asserting this as a fact and that nothing could change it from happening, aside from, apparently, what did happen, makes sense?

Ti ringraziamo per il feedback. Scrivi la tua recensione. The Red Army's cavalry was variously equipped and often eccentrically attired - one cavalryman was glimpsed wearing a bowler hat - but initially performed with the ruthlessness of a Mongol horde. In contrast to the disciplined Polish infantry, the Red Army's infantry often went barefoot, and sustained its morale by a policy of rape and pillage.
The Polish-Soviet War was nasty, brutish and short.
Starting with a pre-emptive attack by Poland against Soviet forces in Ukraine at the end of April , which resulted in a Soviet victory, it was all over by the middle of October, by which time the Polish Army had routed the Russians and reclaimed much of Belarus and Ukraine. With the Red Army on the Vistula, in the outskirts of the Polish capital, Pilsudski's decisive counterstroke was to send five divisions up from the south, to cut off the Russian armies along the length of the north-south front. In Zamoyski's phrase, it was like "thrusting a pitchfork into the Russian armies from the side: This was what happened, and all because, in the words of a young French military adviser, Charles de Gaulle, "the Polish soldier is a marcher of extraordinary endurance".
Russian losses dead, wounded, captured and interned were over , Its cavalry army in the north, the Konkorpus, was smashed; its counterpart in the south escaped as a shadow of its former self.
The mark of a great military historian is not only to do the battlefield descriptions and explain the tactics, but to give the political context and bring the characters of the commanders to life. Zamoyski manages it all in this concise and thrilling account of a forgotten war and argues that, far from being irrelevant, the Polish victory bought "two decades of freedom".
