  • Bitwa pod Skoczowem 鈥 bitwa pomi臋dzy oddzia艂ami polskimi a wojskami czechos艂owackimi w dniach 28鈥30 stycznia 1919. Najwi臋ksze starcie w czasie wojny polsko-czechos艂owackiej.
  • The Battle of Skocz贸w took place in late January 1919, during the Polish鈥揅zechoslovak War. Czechoslovak units were halted only under pressure from the Entente. The result of the war was to set a new demarcation line, which extended the territory controlled by Czechoslovakia. Battle were stopped by the Czechoslovak Minister of Defense near the town of Skocz贸w, Poland and a ceasefire was signed. The Czechoslovak offensive in the Duchy of Teschen began on January 23. Due to the ongoing Polish鈥揢krainian War and Greater Poland Uprising, and the budding Polish鈥揝oviet War (which erupted in February 1919), the bulk of the Polish Armed Forces was located in other provinces of the country. As a result of the Czechoslovak offensive, weak Polish forces near Cieszyn were forced to retreat east- and northwards. To avoid encirclement, on 26 January, the Polish forces evacuated Cieszyn. Colonel Franciszek Latinik, who commanded Polish forces in the area, created a defensive line along the Vistula, from Strumie艅 in the north to Ustro艅 in the south. Above all, Latinik wanted to prevent the enemy from breaking through to Bielsko-Bia艂a and 呕ywiec. On 23 January 1919 at 11:00 in Cieszyn Silesia, at the request of the Czechoslovak party, Latinik and Czechoslovak officer Josef 艩nejd谩rek met with a group of officers, consisting of English, French, Italian and U.S. representatives. The Polish side was given an ultimatum to evacuate the area to the Bia艂a River in less than two hours. After the expiry of this period the Czechoslovak army started its operations at 13:00 following its operational guidelines to seize Bohum铆n and Karvin谩. The Czechoslovak army moved forward, and took Bohum铆n (at 16:00), Orlov谩 and Karvin谩. Polish troops retreated to the river Vistula. On the next day, first clashes took place near Skocz贸w. After a fierce defense, the Poles withdrew to Ustro艅 and Drogomy艣l. On January 30, the Czechoslovaks broke through Polish lines near Strumie艅. Czechoslovak officer Josef 艩nejd谩rek received the order to cross the Vistula and secure the railway line between Bohum铆n and Jablunkov. They crossed the river and the Polish troops retreated to Skocz贸w, where the front line was stalled. Further Czechoslovak reinforcements arrived, which gave 艩nejd谩rek an advantage over the Polish units. The Czechoslovak army prepared for an attack on Skocz贸w on the assumption that there had been a collapse of the Polish defenses. On 31 January 1919, because of pressure from the Triple Entente representatives, the attack on Skocz贸w was cancelled, and the Czechoslovak army ceased fighting. The Czechoslovak army withdrew to the new Green Line, established by the International Commission Agreement on the basis of the Czechoslovak鈥揚olish Treaty, concluded on 3 February 1919 in Paris. The Battle of Skocz贸w is commemorated on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, Warsaw, with the inscription "CIESZYN - SKOCZ脫W 23 - 26 I 1919". * Reconstruction of the battle of Skocz贸w 2.02.2019 * Reconstruction of the battle of Skocz贸w 2.02.2019 * Reconstruction of the battle of Skocz贸w 2.02.2019 * Reconstruction of the battle of Skocz贸w 2.02.2019 * Reconstruction of the battle of Skocz贸w 2.02.2019 * Reconstruction of the battle of Skocz贸w 2.02.2019 * Reconstruction of the battle of Skocz贸w 2.02.2019 * Reconstruction of the battle of Skocz贸w 2.02.2019 * Reconstruction of the battle of Skocz贸w 2.02.2019 * Reconstruction of the battle of Skocz贸w 2.02.2019
