by C. Michael Eliasz-Solomon

HallersArmy_PolishWomenDateline April 22, 1920 (22 Kwietnia 1920  r.) — In the waning days of World War I, Jozef Haller‘s army had to get from France back to Poland.

Once back in Poland, they were able augment their forces with Polish Volunteers. That should not be a surprise. But did you know that Polish women too volunteered to fight in Haller’s Army?

They were part of the forces that fought and defeated the Bolsheviks at Warsaw during the Russian-Poland Border War that followed World War I.
