Polish–Soviet War: A decisive Polish victory in the Battle of Komarów.

The Polish-Soviet War, which took place from 1919 to 1921, resulted in a Polish victory. The war was fought between Poland and Soviet Russia, along with its Bolshevik government. The conflict had multiple phases and was characterized by various military operations and battles. One of the most notable events during the war was the Battle of Warsaw, also known as the “Miracle on the Vistula,” which took place in August 1920. The Polish forces successfully repelled the Soviet offensive and managed to push the Soviet Red Army back.

The war concluded with the signing of the Treaty of Riga in March 1921. This treaty recognized Poland’s territorial gains and established a new eastern border between Poland and Soviet Russia. As a result, Poland retained control over most of the disputed territories and emerged as the victor in the conflict.
