Summary/Review: Józef Piłsudski (1868-1935) is the heroic and controversial leader of the reconstituted Poland that emerged out of World War I. He was a revolutionary who defeated the Red Armies outside of Warsaw and although he never held an elected office, he placed his personal stamp on the development of the Pre-War Polish Republic. In some ways he was a visionary for the era (A Federation of Eastern States, free education, woman’s suffrage) he also was responsible for a dominant military presence and a coup against the elected government. Dr. Lenkiewicz examines the life of this hero of Poland based on original documentation and people who knew him.
