I am not sure about a world war, unless I am misunderstanding you. Still, at the end of WW1, when the borders of Germany and Poland were still in dispute, the Poles of Posen did spark an incident.

I was thinking along the lines of having the Posen Poles trying to trigger rebellions in the Austrian and Russian parts of Poland, though.

see post #22. Somehow I had my post in your quotes. It was a mess.:)
OK.

OK.
I wish I still had my books to survey, sort of. It's always difficult to remember where I read about certain historical occurrences months and years later with hundreds of books on shelves. Anyway, what I do recall is that there was not as much rebellion in the Austrian portion. For one, The A-H empire permitted more autonomy in the form of local rule. There was also not the issue with religion and language being prohibited, or at least greatly discouraged. There was one rebellion though in Galicia during the partitions:

The Russian part of Poland could still be fair game, though. It rebelled against the Russians in 1830-1831 and again in 1863-1864.
