White Eagle, Red StarPosted: February 10, 2014
The book tells the story of the Russo-Polish War of 1919-20, and was written by Norman Davies in 1972. My paperback copy was published by Pimlico (which is part of Random House) in 2003 (ISBN 0 7126 0694 7).
My interest in this little-known war stems from an article I read in a magazine many years ago, but it has recently been reinvigorated by several events. The first of these was my purchase of the DVD of the film BATTLE OF WARSAW.
The second was my participation in a re-fight of the Battle of Ivangorod. Although this was not a battle from the Russo-Polish War it was fought over the same part of Europe and showed yet again that large-scale battles can be fought on a tabletop.
I am now re-reading WHITE EAGLE, RED STAR … and who knows where that will lead.
