How can old men and kids occupy a country?
That's a biased point of view.
Not as biased as yours.
They were soldiers and definitely capable of fighting a war.
So were 15 year olds in Berlin in 1945 it still doesnt make them a good force.
So, add a maximum of 1 million troops to the 400000 you've mentioned, and the Polish would have faced almost 1.5 million soldiers.
How about you stop being a biased cvnt and go read the wiki, in 1919 Germany had a total of 400.000 troops available to them, grand total.
The army that served during WW1 was resolved and most of them were unwilling or incapable of serving because of battle fatigue, the fact that they were fed up with fighting and that is why there was a communist uprising in Germany which became nearly a civil war.
As I said: without the negotiations in February 1919 the Poznan uprising most likely would have failed. IMHO, of course.
Without negotiations Poland still had nearly a milion troops within months while Germany had 400.000 and an unstable internal situation with communists trying to seize power the worst that could happen was Germany engaging Poland in a full war and losing.
But they way to Germany doesn't necessary lead across Poland.
The shortest way did, the point is moot however since the German army disintegrated within weeks.
Beginning of talks about prolongation of ceasefire after WWI. German delegation is against extending it for Great Poland, but France forces them to allow this condition."
Again read the timeline, Germans were prepared for a full strike long before West brought them to heel, they did not attack the reason is obvious.
Secondly political situation in Germany rather excluded possibility of military intervention at this stage.
Amen, it had nothing to do with Versaiiles and everything with the country being drained and having communist issues.
Further east there was lots of soldiers with some elite devisions ready to fight and with high morale.
I agree that there were some divisions but these guys didnt have high morale, they were some of the strongest supporters of communism.
