Abstract:

The causes of the Russian-Polish war that began In December 1918 and ended In October 1980, must be sought on the one band In the policy of the Soviet leader a to spread Bolshevism throughout the world, and especially to infect Poland with it and on the other hand in the determination of Poland to resist all attempts at overthrowing it social order and at the same time to obtain an advantageous frontier in the East. The decisive battle was the Battle of the Vistula. It is a splendid example of maneuver in open warfare. Since Marshall Pilsudaki is undeniably the author of the maneuver that freed Poland and since Toukhatchevsky, the Russian Commander, made all the decisions concerning his forces, it is believed that a brief resume of their characters will give an added insight to this battle of maneuver of the Vistula.
