The miracle on the Vistula.
My family has photos of those trenches.
They threw ALOT of money at this film. The uniforms, sets and
weapons are all top notch, as is the cinematography (a Polish specialty).
Of course, they gloss over the fact that Poland started the war by trying to recreate the borders of the 17th century commonwealth (read Davies), and there are real doubts about how much Lenin really was trying to bring the revolution to all of europe.
But the combat scenes are excellent, as is conveying the basics of Pilsudki's victory. Stall the Reds at the trenches before Warsaw, then hit them in a massive flanking maneuver.
I would debate as to how quiet and prosperous Warsaw would have been just before the war started. Poland was just getting restarted after 4 years of WWI.
In the end, and probably due to my heritage, I could not help but be inspired by Boy Scouts and women's battalions, the Polish American flyers and the multitudes digging trenches to stop the Bolshevik hordes.
Poles do truly hate Russians.
Putin should take note.
Jescze Polska nie zgniela!
