Haller's Army: Polish Regimental Casualty List
This list of casualties is extracted from Polish Regimental Histories written within 10 years of the end of the Polish-Soviet war of 1918-1920. These casualties are of men who were killed or died from wounds in battle both on the Western and Eastern Fronts. Some data includes casualties sustained in units fighting in France up to the Armistice of November 11, 1918. Many others are casualties which occurred after the French campaigns and include fighting in Poland, Ukraine, and Volhynia (Wolynia), up to 1921.
These regiments were under the command of General Jozef Haller both in France prior to the Armistice, and Poland, Ukraine, Lithuania, and Belarus after peace was achieved on the Western Front. The 43rd, 44th, and 45th Regiments were renamed from the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Regiments respectively which were recruited in North America and formed at Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario. Other regiments were made up of Polish recruits from Poland as well as recruited Polish prisoners-of-war in Italy, France, Ukraine, and Belarus.
This list is exclusive to the Internet by PolishRoots and is not the same as the other casualty database found at Polish Army in France Casualty List. Both should be checked for individual names. The information available is not identical in each database. As time permits, additional regiments and names will be added.
