A TRIBUTE: General Jozef Haller & The Blue Army


Ignacy Jan Paderewski
Paderewski was instrumental in getting President Woodrow Wilson's approval to recruit a Polish Army on American soil. Wilson, however, would not allow such an army to be formed or trained within the US, so recruits mustered in Canada. Paderewski also successfully lobbied Wilson to secure his support for a free and independent, post-war Poland, eventually one of Wilson's "Fourteen Points."
