Product Description

 

POLAND, LITHUANIA AND THE BALTIC STATES

 

1920

 

 

By Autumn of 1918, Germany and her allies in the Central Powers were beginning to collapse. On November 11, 1918 an armistice was signed which ended World War I.  

 

The terms of the armistice called for an immediate evacuation of German troops from Belgium, France, and Luxembourg within fifteen days. In addition, it established that Allied forces would occupy the Rhineland. In late 1918, Allied troops entered Germany and began the occupation.

POLAND

In late 1918, a Polish Government was formed and an independent Poland proclaimed. In December, Poles launched an uprising within the German province of Posen. Fighting lasted until February when an armistice was signed leaving the area in Polish hands, but technically still German.

 

German defeat in World War I was culminated in the Treaty of Versailles, which Germany and the Allied Nations signed on 28 June 1919.

Germany had to recognize the independence of Poland and renounce "all rights and title over the territory". Portions of Upper Silesia were to be ceded to Poland, with the future of the rest of the province to be decided by plebiscite.

 

This map is a great resource for genealogical or historical research.   The 11x 14 inch (or slightly larger) map is printed  on 80 pound archival paper and protected by our  archival quality polypropylene  sleeve.    An insert on the back of the map provides brief information about the map and a brief history of the area represented on the map.  

 

 

This map is reprinted from an original map which we own.
