Another one would be Paul Kruger who led the resistance of the oppressed Boers against the British imperialists. Tragically, though, the Boers failed.

National liberation does not necessarily have to be of a revolutionary socialist character. In this context, national liberation is more about resistance to foreign occupation e.g Joan of Arc rather than the revolutionary transformation of society e.g G.A Nasser. While some may perceive Ferdinand and Isabelle to be oppressive, they still are to be applauded for liberating the Spanish people from the tyranny of the Arab imperialism.

Please do not distort the conflict as one of Russian aggression because the Polish started the war when they unleashed aggression upon Soviet Ukraine in April 1920 with the Kiev Offensive. And don't present the conflict as being a one-sided victory for Poland when in fact it was a stalemate. The Poles did not defeat the Russians any more than the Russians defeated themselves with strategic mistakes. Russian troops were poorly trained, poorly equipped conscripts sitting in internal garrisons. Transport was in a terrible state and distractions in other areas meant that the Polish front had to rely on its own resources.

Previously the Poles had unleashed aggression upon the Lithuanian-Byelorussian SSR in 1919. In February 1920 before Polish aggression the Bolshevik press stated:

But our enemies and yours deceive you when they say that the Russian Soviet Government wishes to plant communism in Polish soil with the bayonets of Russian Red Army men. A communist order is possible only where the vast majority of the working people are penetrated with the idea of creating it by their own strength. Only then can it be solid; for only then can communist policy strike deep roots in a country. The communists of Russia are at present striving only to defend their own soil, their own constructive work; they are not striving, and cannot strive, to plant communism by force in other countries.” Source:EH Carr, The Bolshevik Revolution, volume 3, p.165, London
