Event description

November 11 in Latvia is celebrated as the Day of Fatherland defenders. On this day in 1919 the armed forces of the young Latvian state repelled an attack by troops of Bermont advancing on Riga. German General Bermont had intended to join former province of the Russian Empire, Courland and Livonia to the German state. To do this, at that time in Germany about a dozen thousands of professional mercenaries were put under the gun. However, the troops of the young Latvian state were able to draw German mercenaries to run. Since then, November 11 is celebrated as national holiday in Latvia.
