(p.60) Chapter 4 Mikaszewicze
The Triumph of Provocation

Józef Mackiewicz

Yale University Press

This chapter examines the role of secret negotiations in Mikaszewicze on the outcome of the Polish-Bolshevik War. It suggests that Polish leader Josef Pilsudski's decision to negotiate with Soviet leader Vladimir Lenin was based on his belief that the Bolshevik Revolution caused the weakening of Russia and that he considered the possible overthrow of Bolshevism by the counterrevolution as a potential strengthening of Russia. It also considers some of the secrets to the Riga Treaty.

Keywords:   Polish-Bolshevik War, Mikaszewicze, Josef Pilsudski, Vladimir Lenin, Bolshevik Revolution, counterrevolution, Riga Treaty, secret negotiations
