In Poland: the Warsaw battle with the Bolsheviks was of great importance for humanity

78

The Battle of Warsaw in 1920 is one of the key episodes of the Soviet-Polish war, which the Poles call the "Polish-Bolshevik". It was the largest war in a series of local conflicts that began after the end of the First World War and the collapse of four empires - Russian, Ottoman, German and Austro-Hungarian.


An interactive project is dedicated to this war and the battle of Warsaw bitwa1920.gov.pl., which was created jointly by Polskie Radio and Niepodległą.

The project tells about the Soviet-Polish war from the point of view, officially adopted today by Warsaw. In particular, it says that after the victory over internal opponents by the early 1920s, the Bolsheviks focused on Poland.

Soviet troops with the forces of two fronts attacked from Ukraine and Belarus in the direction of Warsaw. The offensive went so successfully that, according to Polish historians, Lenin decided to take the Polish capital with the forces of the Western Front alone, and then strike at Berlin. The task of the Southwestern Front included the capture of Lvov, followed by an exit to Budapest and Vienna.

Having occupied Poland, according to Polish researchers, the Red Army was supposed to make it another Soviet republic. For this, the puppet Provisional Revolutionary Committee of Poland (Polrevkom) was already formed, which included the Polish Bolsheviks.

Actually, the existence of not too peaceful plans in the Soviet government indirectly confirms the words of Marshal Tukhachevsky:

The road to the world conflagration leads through the corpse of White Poland. We will bring happiness and peace to the working people on our bayonets. To the west!

On the other hand, it is quite possible that the aspirations of the Red Army were limited to the liberation of Western Ukraine and Western Belarus, whose territory Poland inadvertently "grabbed" after gaining independence. Be that as it may, but the crushing defeat of the Soviet troops by the Poles did not allow these plans to come true.

British diplomat Edgar Vincent d'Abernon, who at that time was chairman of the Inter-Allied Mission to Poland, considered the Battle of Warsaw one of the main events of the world stories:

If the Battle of Warsaw ended in victory for the Bolsheviks, there would be a turning point in European history, for there is not the slightest doubt that with the fall of Warsaw, Central Europe would be open to communist propaganda and Soviet invasion.

Of course, the views of the Soviet military-political leadership were very far from pacifist, but at that time none of the countries of Central and Eastern Europe, including Poland, were distinguished by their peacefulness. After the collapse of four empires in this vast territory from the Arctic Circle to the Mediterranean Sea, a vacuum was formed in which each nation tried to realize its national interests at any cost, regardless of the interests of its neighbors.

      If it were not for the help of the French, they would have defeated Pilsudski for sure ... as always, the French slipped a pig into the Red Army.

      The de facto commander of the Polish army was the French General Weygand, the head of the Anglo-French military mission in Warsaw. Several hundred French officers with extensive experience in World War II became advisers in the Polish army,

          The reason for the defeat is not military, but ideological.
          Tukhachevsky rushed forward also because the ideologists were waiting for the workers' communist uprising in Polish cities. And if so, why pull - it is necessary to attack.
          And they waited because of the incorrectly interpreted phrase from the "Manifesto of the Communist Party" - "The proletarian has no fatherland." And it, as it turned out, is.
          By the way, the commissars expected the same uprising in June 1941 from the German workers.

          What article is this and the argument ... The defeat of Tukhachevsky in Poland has been studied far and wide ... information and documents are enough to study this round of history.
          in 1920 Charles de Gaulle, who turned 30, took part in the rank of major (on the Polish side, as a member of the French military mission) in the Soviet-Polish war, where the Red Army was commanded by 27-year-old commander Mikhail Tukhachevsky

          The fate of these people in this campaign is interesting.

      Tukhachevsky about ... l the world revolution, at least the European one. And maybe it's for the best. Because if everything went according to plan, then the center of the USSR would not be Moscow, but either Berlin or Paris, and most likely German would become the state language. And Russia, accordingly, would be a bearish corner in this USSR.

          And in 1919, the army command sent Adolf Hitler to a weeklong campaign of agitators to work against the communists, after which he was promoted to officer [lieutenant] of education. Adolf Hitler (1889-1945).

    If the Battle of Warsaw ended in victory for the Bolsheviks, there would be a turning point in European history, for there is not the slightest doubt that with the fall of Warsaw, Central Europe would be open to communist propaganda and Soviet invasion.

    1. There is no doubt about it. The victory of the revolution in Germany meant that Hitler would not exist and the Second World War could be avoided (including the occupation of Poland and the death of 6 million Polish citizens). In addition, the "world merit" of the victory at Warsaw is that it turned history towards the victory of Hitler and the death of millions of Poles.
    2. If the Bolshevik revolution did not win, then independent Poland could not be beaten. What the fate of the Polish people could have hit without the USSR and after the victory of Nazism in Germany is easy to foresee. So the victory of the Red Army near Kiev over the Polish aggression saved Poland itself from enslavement and death.

    The Poles have forgotten that they started this war. They began with the defeat of the West Ukrainian Red Army and the occupation of the ZUNR-West Ukrainian People's Republic in early 1919. They continued in Belarus, and then in 1919 defeated the UPR army and occupied Kiev. Only after that the RSFSR began to transfer additional forces against the Poles. That is, the Poles were the aggressors. And they began to smash them quite successfully. But Great Britain and France urgently gave Poland a loan and delivered weapons, ammunition and uniforms to replace what was lost. Then MN Tukhachevsky launched an offensive on Warsaw without providing the left flank.To cover it, he demanded that the Southwestern Front under the command of Yegorov give him the First Horse. But she was involved in the Lvov operation. It was impossible to withdraw it from the battle and transfer it to the Western Front instantly. First, it was necessary to stop the offensive, replace the First Horse with infantry units, replenish it and transfer it to the Western Front by march. And this was not one day or one week. And there was no time. It was in this open flank that General Sikorsky struck. All the blame lies entirely with Tukhachevsky when developing the operation.

    The defeat of Tukhachevsky was inflicted not by the Psheks, but by the French, who exercised real command of the Polish army. Psheki are not capable of inflicting defeat on anyone at all. Well, just your own country. It is not for nothing that they say that dark times come for Poland if a Pole is at the head of the country.

                  When the Germans as a separate nation were born, Poland as a state did not exist for a hundred years.

                    The Germans appeared as a separate nation in 843, after the division of Charlemagne's empire between his sons. The date of the formation of the first Polish state is considered to be 966 - in significantly smaller borders than now. Oleg nailed the shield to the gates of Constantinople in 907. Therefore, it seems that Poland was formed with the goal indicated by Mikhail. The fact that feudal fragmentation lasted longer in Germany than anywhere else in Europe does not mean that the nation did not exist - all these dukes, princes and electors were related to each other. The emperor of the Holy Roman Empire of the German people formally possessed all power in a territory larger than today's Germany and Austria, sometimes up to and including Milan, which, it should be noted, was strongly hindered by the French kings, and also sometimes had a residence in Prague. Another thing is that the big feudal lords did not obey him well. After the third partition of Poland, with a short break for the period of Napoleon's rule, the ties between Russia and Germany for about a century were very strong, especially for some time after 1866, when Austria-Hungary practically became a protectorate of Germany. Dreikieserbund, so to speak. But some people, let's not point the finger, put a lot of effort into ruining this seemingly stable structure.

    The project tells about the Soviet-Polish war from the point of view, officially adopted today by Warsaw. In particular, it says that after the victory over internal opponents by the early 1920s, the Bolsheviks focused on Poland.

    The authors of the project decided to forget that the Poles had captured Kiev and a bunch of territories by this time? Clearly taking advantage of the situation ..

    Read and remember men, for the sake of our grandfathers and great-grandfathers who fell (600 thousand) for the sake of the liberation and preservation of the cities of Poland! After all, they could have simply demolished all the artillery and the infantry went .. Here she is gratitude!
    We even forgave them 100 thousand of Tukhachevsky's Red Army soldiers who were frozen in captivity ..
    Don't do good, you won't get stabbed in the back ..
    Well, now everything has been found out about everything .. Let's be cynical, as in the days of the Tsarist Empire in relation to Poland (the province of Russia) ..
    It's a pity that the Poles have not learned anything in their history .. hi We wanted the best ..

      Finally, he was born Hitler. It was his father Alois who was Schicklgruber in childhood, but became Hitler when his father (and, accordingly, Adolf's grandfather) married Adolf's grandmother Maria Schicklgruber and legitimized his biological son Alois, born before marriage.

    In a sense, a truly epochal moment. If we were with our ideas at that time on the border with Germany, how to know how everything would turn out ... Although perhaps these events played into the hands of both us and Europe - after the revolutions and the General War of the RSFSR was not in the best shape, and harass our thoroughly beaten dem .the potential for a world revolution without end is such an idea .. so we at least focused on building and organizing within the country.

    Do the Poles think? And who is interested in this their "accounting" opinion, except themselves? Poland is a misunderstanding that has arisen due to the sluggishness of Russia and Germany, and with the slightest tension between politicians in Europe, it will disappear just as it did - unexpectedly and quickly.

      The opinion of the Poles is interesting, at least to you, since you have not only read the note, but also left a comment. Usually, what is not interesting is not read. And to figure out which state by whose sluggishness arose is a task just as thankless as predicting the future.

      Poland gained independence at a time when the citizens of the former Russian Empire were too busy exterminating each other. They had no time for the Poles. so it's not a matter of quickness. The defeated Germans, all the more, had no time for Poland ... That's what the gentlemen took advantage of the moment.
