A documentary film based on restored archive footage from the Polish-Soviet War of 1920 which culminated with one of the greatest military victories in the history of Poland.

The Battle of Warsaw, a crucial battle for Poland and Europe, also known as the Miracle of the Vistula was fought in August 1920. The entire war, however, spanned a much longer period of time and a much larger area than just Warsaw. The battles were fought from Smolensk to Warsaw, from Plock to Lviv. The victory wasn’t really a miracle but the result of the effective command, valuable intel gathered by the Polish army and the soldiers’ fighting spirit.

The “War of the Worlds” also features radio broadcasts, witnesses’ accounts, photographs, orders and secret reports. The Polish Television also restored previously unpublished, hundred years old footage, from Russia, France, Great Britain, Czech Republic, Hungary and the USA.
