Retreat to Bug River

Rana Mitter traces the dramatic events of August 1920 when the Red Army marched on Warsaw in the hope of exporting the Bolshevik revolution to Poland, Germany and beyond.

In conversation with historians Norman Davies and Timothy Garton Ash, veterans of the Polish-Soviet war of 1919-20 and their relatives, Rana brings to life the day-by-day events of August 1920 and asks how the Battle of Warsaw continues to influence Poland and the wider region.
