4. Start date of 6-Poland1920.scn.
It starts in early may 1920 with Polish forces in position for Kiev's Offensive, but the real thing started in March/April.
On March 5-10, the Poleski Group troops carried out a local offensive, winning the Mozyrz, Barbary, Kalinkowicze, Rzeczyca and Czarnobyl. This move separated the Russian armies of the Western Front and the Southwest Front. This victory enabled the launch of the Kiev Operation. The campaign was conducted from April to June 1920.
The initial expedition took part started on April 24, 1920. But on May 24, 1920 the Polish-Ukrainian forces encountered the First Cavalry Army of Semyon Budionny. Two days later, Budionny's cavalry, with two major units from the Russian 12th Army, began an assault on the Polish forces centered around Kiev.
So early May, how the operation in the game begins, is just the beginning of the Soviet counterattack.
There could be two scenarios (one of April with the Polish offensive and the other of May with a Soviet counterattack). However, the Polish troops stand in the April positions in the game.
- so the date should be adjusted
- also Polish commanders and units they command not always agree with the Kiev Offensive - basically it's such a mix of 1919 and 1920
5. Polish troops in 6-Poland1920.scn.
The Polish forces grew from approximately 100,000 in 1918 to over 600,000 in early 1920. By the end of 1919, Polish forces had 21 infantry divisions, 7 cavalry brigades. In the first months of 1920, new recruits were incorporated to raise numerical numbers. At the same time, however, demobilization of some of the old soldiers of the "blue army" was carried out. But for the 1920 campaign Poland has issued over 700,000 soldiers.
However, in the game, you can only train a number of one-regimental brigades, from which you can not form a division corresponding numerically to the Soviet ones. This is error, as Polish division did not count numerically less than the Soviet one.
Some of the issues are subject of modification being created by myself. I just wanted to signalize that.
