Included by JFC Fuller in his two volume Decisive Battles of the Western World, the victory of the Polish Army over the numerically superior Red Army in the ‘Miracle of the Vistula’ is relatively unknown and its importance imperfectly understood. Who were the protagonists? Why did Lenin invade the territory of the new Polish state? How did the Poles achieve victory against the odds? What were the consequences of the battle for Poland, the Soviet Union and Western Europe?
