Prusy Wschodnie w polityce niemieckiej Józefa Piłsudskiego
East Prussia in Józef Piłsudski’s German policy
Languages of publication
East Prussia never belonged to Marshal Józef Piłsudski’s sphere of serious interest, irrespective of the period of his political activity. Both in the territorial and military context, East Prussia was merely a derivative of general guidelines of Piłsudski’s and Poland’s policy towards Germany. Despite the fact that nobody questioned the potential threat connected with the East Prussia protrusion, no speciﬁc plan of operations for this area was worked out in case of war, and the Marshal himself marginalized the actuality of this threat. Even though, to some degree, such behavior may be explained by the lasting since 1934 disproportion between Polish and German military forces, it is hard not to notice the negligible position of East Prussia on the list of the Marshal’s priorities.
