The outbreak of World War I resurrected Poland's hopes of regaining independence. The road to freedom was long and the return of Poland to the maps of Europe was occupied by the blood of hundreds of thousands of Poles on the fronts of the Great War, but in 1918 Poland regained its coveted independence. The process of Poland's independence was long and laborious, and above all, full of suffering and sacrifices. At first the Poles bled away in the November and January uprisings, then on the fronts of the First World War where they faced each other in hostile trenches. The symbol of Poland's departure for the war was the march of the First Company of Józef Piłsudski to the Kingdom of Poland. The activity of the First Company was a disaster. The goals set by Józef Piłsudski were not achieved and the Poles from the Kingdom did not eagerly join the Polish troops under the banner of Austria-Hungary. Nobody in the world did not want Poland. There seemed to be no way for all the invaders to lose the war. But there was a light in the tunnel. The first premises that could give rise to hope for the freedom of the Polish lands occurred in 1915 when one of the MPs of the Italian parliament addressed the postulate of the founding of a free and independent Poland. Many MPs and senators have called for this. In 1917 Russia was ruled out of the war by the Bolshevik Revolution. Then Europe's geopolitical situation changed significantly. Central European troops were unloaded in the east, but in the west the German-Austrian armies were pressed against the wall. In 1918, the last offensive was carried out by the German staff, and on 11 November the Great War ended with the act of surrendering Germany. Józef Piłsudski arrives from Magdeburg prison to Warsaw the day before. Poland is back on the map of the world, but it is only the beginning of the struggle to maintain its newly regained state. Poland was in captivity for 123 years because she was not happy. In 1918 she had a lot of luck, because everything was up to her. The rise of independent Poland was one of the greatest miracles of the 20th century.
