ISBN: 0712606947. 308pp/maps. This volume gives a full account of the Polish-Soviet War of 1919-20, when the Red Army was crushed by a devasting Polish attack. The author draws on documentary material and shows how this episode largely determined the course of European history for the next 20 years. A neglected event in history, the Polish-Soviet War of 1919-20 was not the final episode in the wars of intervention, but an independent enterprise on the Polish side with minimal support from the Entente Powers. In many English history books, it appears under the erroneous title of the 'Russo-Polish War', and is treated as just one spot in the rash of border conflicts which broke out all over Europe at this time. As far as Soviet history is concerned, the war with Poland represents the first occasion when the Red Army set out to revolutionise the whole of Europe - for the Poles, it was an occasion when they finally justified their claim to independent statehood.
