Inter-war Poland

The Inter-War period for Poland (between World War I and World War II) was marked by the first Polish-governed state since right before the Partitions of 1772, 1793 and 1795.  Sure, the Duchy of Warsaw and (later) Congress Poland, while technically on the map, were actually puppet governments under Imperial Russia.

This 20 year period saw a democratic Poland, a war against the Soviets (which we won), and a military coup against an extremely unpopular government.

Should you wish to see what Poland looked like geographically during this historic era, here are some maps of inter-war Polish cities, some of which are now located in Ukraine, Belarus, and Lithuania:
