The centennial anniversary of the battle and the war is in my opinion marks the highlight of interest and remembrance as well as celebrations. I gather it all that interest will gradually wither down. It will downsize and only historians and few geeks would be interested in that historical fact. The public will be as much as possible indifferent to the whole issue.

There is nothing wrong with it. After all after 100 years there is not much that can be said and basically there is not people who were adult participants.

Whilst it was a glorious victory and a significant battle its results didn't alter geopolitical circumstances of Poland hence the fruits of that victory were very short lived.

That would be all my thought on the battle.
Although one could ask what lessons could be learn from it. I'm not in the mood to dabble into semi-philosophical issues today.

Face it, western gaylords, if not for us, you'd all be speaking Russian now.

No, it is just another Polish legend. Bolshevik armies were too weak to conquer Europe in 1920, come on.

No, Poland saved western civilization three times and deserves credits therefor: Battle of Liegnitz (diverting Mongol hordes from northern European plains), Battle of Vienna 1683 kicking Kebab ass and crushing Bolshevik scum in front of Warsaw in 1920.

No, it didn`t. Those were local battles which didn`t save whole Europe but only single countries: Poland, Austria.
