Forget Pilsudski, at least he wasn`t bolshevik even if socialist... for sure Slavic were soldiers-Poles and forgive me if i`m gratefull for some things that Pilsudski made... and for some definetly not.
I agree, i hate the red scum but lets not forget that Pilsudski wanted to aid the Japanese during the Russo-Japanese War, quite unnecessary, since its was quite clear that Poland's independence depended just as much on the germans as it did on the russians.
Yes, that was big problem. Pilsudski decided to work with Austrians, where Galicia had autonomy. He was socialist, but patriot, nationalists under leadership of Dmowski wanted to cooperate with Russia, but with WHITE Russia, they hated German "kultur kampf". After end of IWW Pilsudski just resignef from cooperation with Germans and Dmowski in Paris forced borders, Paderewski made Wilson to force Polish exsistence and becouse of his visit in Poznan started Grater Poland uprise against Germans.
BUT, i think that i could be gratefull reds for two thing: that they moved borders and resettle Germans and Poles (which is more fair and don`t make us to fight with Ukrainians, i prefer to have there friends, not enemies). Second thing is Polish Flag in Berlin in 1945.
gen. Casimir Sosnkowski with officers from ORP "B³yskawica" ("Lightning"), which today is battleship-museum in Gdynia (Gotenhafen)... I have served there for short time, when i was preparing myself to some olympiad...
Polish Navy is proud that has, as only formation, halted his nomenclature in times of PRL (1945-1989)... Name ORP (Okrêt Rzeczypospolitej Polskiej - Battleship Republic of Poland) has never changed since 28 XI 1918, when Josef Pi³sudski established Polish Navy ...

"In 1925 the Council of the League of Nations allowed Poland to keep 88 soldiers on Westerplatte. By September 1939 the crew of Westerplatte had increased to 182 soldiers. They were armed with one 75 mm field gun, two 37 mm Bofors antitank guns, four mortars and a number of medium machine guns. There were no real fortifications, only several concrete blockhouses hidden in the island's forest.
The Polish garrison was separated from Freie Stadt Danzig (Gdańsk) city by the harbour channel, with only a small pier connecting them to the mainland. In case of war, the defenders were supposed to withstand a sustained attack for 12 hours.
The Polish garrison's commanding officer was Major Henryk Sucharski, the executive officer was Captain Franciszek Dąbrowski.
It is famous as the place of Battle of Westerplatte, the first major battle of the Invasion of Poland in 1939.
Battleship Schleswig-Holstein shelling Westerplatte on September 1, 1939.
On September 1, 1939, at 0445 local time, as Germany began its invasion of Poland, Schleswig-Holstein started to shell the Polish garrison. This was followed by a repelled attack by German naval infantry. Another two assaults that day were repelled as well. Over the coming days, the Germans repeatedly bombarded Westerplatte with naval and heavy field artillery along with dive-bombing raids by Junkers Ju 87 Stukas. Repeated attacks were repelled by the Poles for seven days. On September 7th major Henryk Sucharski decided to surrender.

reznik: @proto-Orchid: very true. What's worse, is that the system is designed specifically to keep those people dormant in their echo chambers. Nothing new to learn for them there, just stupid cat videos and such. Sad.

Proto-Orchid: Its the substitute for going out, meeting and spending your time with friends in real life. Its just part of the story. When I was younger I remember people were meeting to play team sports, but today you see completely autistic people jogging with iPhone.
Oct 14, 2018 18:18:38 GMT -5
Proto-Orchid: Then they come back home, put pictures on Instagram or Facebook to show off how they spent their time jogging, and as mental satisfaction they get few likes or hearts, or whatever social medias have today, which is a measure of how good their life is. Sick
