Polish Superheroes who Fought for Their County: Freedom Fighters of Poland


Poland lies in the central province of Europe. It is a country with a lot of great landscapes and cityscape. Today, the country is developing at its full pace. This development is possible only because of the safety that is provided by the military army of Poland.

Let us know who the freedom fighters of Poland were:

Gen. Józef Haller:

Gen. Józef Haller

In his youth he was an officer of the emperor Franz Josef I, after retiring, he took up social activities. The outbreak of World War I dramatically changed his life.

Polish Legions, Polish Auxiliary Corps, II Polish Corps, Polish Army in France. Haller became a legend, the commander who led his soldiers to fight the three partitioners, returned with the “Blue Army” to the country, commanded in battles with the Bolsheviks near Warsaw.

The book is an attempt to answer the questions: how was it possible that – underestimated by many – the general reached the heights of fame, whether it was possible his victory in the rivalry with Józef Piłsudski for leadership in independent Poland. The biography contains less well-known manifestations of the activity of Józef Haller.

Jozef Pilsudski:

Publications that are currently under development analyzing not only individual aspects of Józef Piłsudski’s activity, but also the reception of his independence idea later in the year inspire creators.

Among the authors of countless sculptures, graphics, paintings and literary works devoted to Piłsudski there are the most outstanding Polish artists and writers, among others: Wojciech Kossak, Konstanty Laszczka C Jan.

In August 2014, 100 years have passed since Józef Piłsudski, at the head of the shooters, entered the Kingdom of Poland, entering his name in the pages of Polish history.

Since then, the phenomenon of the future Marshal’s invariably provokes researchers in many fields of science, politicians, and journalists to explore his rich personality.

It is still fascinating and provides interesting content in the discussion about the role it played in shaping the history of Poland and Europe in the 20th century. He traveled a long and dangerous path. The emerging museum and education complex with a permanent narrative exhibition will bring this path closer.
