Florian Siwicki (Polish pronunciation: [ˈflɔrjan ɕiˈvit͡skʲi]; born January 10, 1925 in Łuck, Poland) is a Polish military officer, diplomat and a communist politician, as well as a General of the Polish Army (retired). Throughout his career he held a number of posts, including military attaché in China, commanding officer of the 2nd Polish Army during the invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968,[1] the Chief of General Staff of the Polish Army[2] and a long-time Minister of Military Affairs in the governments of Wojciech Jaruzelski, Zbigniew Messner, Mieczysław Rakowski and Tadeusz Mazowiecki.[3] As one of the people behind the imposition of the martial law in Poland in 1981, after Poland deposed the ruling communist regime in 1989 Siwicki was forced into retirement in July of 1990.[4] After Jaruzelski stepped down from his position as Defense Minister, Siwicki was then appointed to the position, along with serving as Jaruzelski's "top deputy on the defense council".[5] In October of 1983, Siwicki was awarded with the Cross of Grunwald, first class.[6] References ^ Paczkowski, Andrzej; Malcolm Byrne, Gregory F.
