The Battle of Warsaw (August 12-25, 1920), also known as the Miracle of the Vistula, was a series of battles that resulted in a decisive Polish victory during the Polish-Soviet War. Poland, on the verge of total defeat, repulsed and defeated the Red Army, and Polish victory over the Soviets halted the spread of communism further westwards into Europe.

Vladimir Lenin, the Bolshevik leader called it "an enormous defeat" for his forces, and British politician, diplomat, and author Edgar Vincent D'Abernon included this battle on his expanded list of most decisive battles in the world's history.

To mark the centennial of this momentous event in Poland's history, we invite you for a webinar with a specialist in diplomatic and political history in the interwar period, Piotr Puchalski, Ph.D. who will examine the role played by the Polish-Soviet War in determining Western geopolitical aims.

Piotr Puchalski holds a Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and is an Assistant Professor of modern European history at the Pedagogical University in Kraków. He specializes in diplomatic and political history of the interwar period. In his upcoming book, he analyzes the role played by colonial aspirations in the formation and development of the interwar Polish state.
