The album, entitled "1920. The Battle That Saved Europe", features “priceless memories of participants [of the battle] and historically significant speeches related to the Battle of Warsaw”, said Agnieszka Kamińska, president of public broadcaster Polish Radio.

The album also includes unique recordings of soldiers' songs, as well as a 120-pages long story of the landmark clash in the booklet. The story features photos documenting everyday life at the front, reproductions of famous paintings inspired by the battle, as well as a collection of war posters and press clippings published in 1920-1921.

The album will be available from August 7 here.

A host of cultural, religious and military events are expected to be held throughout the country this year to celebrate the landmark battle, which is believed to have saved the nation's newly regained independence after the end of World War I and prevented the Bolshevik revolution from spreading into Western Europe.

The 1920 Battle of Warsaw, often described as the “Miracle of the Vistula,” was fought from August 12 to 25 in 1920 as Red Army forces commanded by Mikhail Tukhachevsky approached the Polish capital.

Polish forces led by Marshal Józef Piłsudski counterattacked, forcing the Soviets to withdraw.
