White eagle, red star: the Polish-Soviet war, 1919-20
In "White Eagle, Red Star," distinguished historian Norman Davies gives us a full account of the Polish-Soviet War, with its dramatic climax in August 1920 when the Red Army- sure 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 most crucial conflicts of the Western world. Drawing on both Polish and Russian sources, Norman Davies shows how this war was a pivotal event in the course of European history.
