Josef Pilsudski personified and led Poland from its resurrection in 1918 until his death in 1935. Successively a convicted terrorist, a socialist agitator, a cavalry officer, Field Marshal and vanquisher of Trotsky's Red Army, a democrative president and a dictator, he became the embodiment of Polish nationalism. Pilsudski is still the most attractive figure to modern Central European nationalists, representing the virtues of military and moral strength to a new generation of re-emerging countries. In the Baltic states, in Poland itself, in the Ukraine, Slovakia, Slovenia and Croatia, Pilsudski's is a potent myth. This is the first biography of the man in English for two generations. It is an abridged translation of Andrzej Garlicki's major biography, which could not be published in Poland until the Soviet grip had been loosened. It is not only the story of a great man's life, but also a work of new European scholarship, a contribution to 20th century history, and an insight into the myths and symbols of Slav nationalism, one of the most important political forces to emerge in Europe since the War.
