Smolensk War

The Smolensk War (1632–1634) was a conflict fought between the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth and Russia.

Hostilities began in October 1632 when Tsar forces tried to recapture the city of Smolensk, a former Russian possession. Small military engagements produced mixed results for both sides, but the surrender of the main Russian force in February 1634 led to the Treaty of Polyanovka. Russia accepted Polish-Lithuanian control, which lasted for another 20 years, over the Smolensk region.

Famous quotes containing the word war:

    Soldier, there is a war between the mind
    And sky, between thought and day and night. It is
    For that the poet is always in the sun,
    Patches the moon together in his room
    To his Virgilian cadences, up down,
    Up down. It is a war that never ends.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
