The Battle of Warsaw, 1920: One Hundred Years Ago

Polish history podcast by Norman Davies.

Norman Davies, an author and historian, invites you to listen to a podcast about the Battle of Warsaw, 1920, prepared for the Relief Society for Poles and produced by UrbanRec for the Polish Culture Institute in London.

The Battle of Warsaw, also known as the Miracle of the Vistula, was a series of battles that resulted in a decisive Polish victory in 1920 during the Polish–Soviet War. 

Poland, on the verge of total defeat, repulsed the Red Army in what Vladimir Lenin, the Bolshevik leader, called “an enormous defeat” for his forces.  

To mark the 100th anniversary of this remarkable event in the European history, Polish Cultural Institute produced a podcast with the extraordinary Norman Davies reflecting on the battle.  

You can also listen to our podcast on Anchor and soon on all leading podcast platforms like Google or iTunes.
