Description
 
For the first time in English, a history of the Polish Army in France, aka Hallerís Army, aka the Blue Army, aka Armia Hallera, is compiled from regimental histories, memoirs, period reports, letters and documents. Starting with the origins of the Restoration of Poland movement and the major roles of the city of Pittsburgh and the Polish Falcons, through the view of Ignacy Paderewski as he officially sat at the Paris peace talks; this book explains the formation, development, and accomplishments of this fighting force of Polish volunteers from America. They enlisted to travel to France for battle against the Imperial German and Austro-Hungarian armies on the western front, and subsequently to fight against the wave of Communism and the Bolshevik menace in the Polish-Soviet War of 1919-1920. Many of these resources have not been published in over 75 years and many are here for the first time in English.

Included in the book are:
   Regimental histories written less than 10 years after the war
   Memoirs of two of the armyís most active officers
   Reports by the Canadian Army at Niagara on the Lake as well as the reaction of local residents to the influx of so many foreign troops
   Accounts of the rapport which existed between the Polish Army in France and the YMCA
   Biography of General Haller as presented at a banquet honoring him in Wilkes- Barre in 1934
   75 photos, 6 maps and a flowchart of the development of the army
   Over 1600 names of recruits from the Pittsburgh/ SW Pennsylvania region
   715 names of casualties in France and the Eastern Front
   161 names of Virtuti Militari award recipients
   277 place names involved with battles on the Eastern Front
   21 page index of Proper Names and Terms
