Civil War in Central Europe, 1918-1921

The Reconstruction of Poland

Jochen Böhler

The Greater War

  • Challenges current historiography and argues the conflicts of 1918-1921 should be referred to as the Central European Civil War
  • Explores how military violence evolved to be used against the public
  • Examines how nations such as Poland, Ukraine, and Lithuania were forged in this period
  • Addresses the large scale of war crimes committed in this period, focusing particularly on the Polish border region of Kresy
