User Reviews

polish cavalry did fight mounted ,germans armored unit.
12 October 2014 | by lataillade1957See all my reviews

The Polish campaign of September 1939 counted fifteen significant cavalry actions Two were pure fast cavalry charges with spears and sabers, others were fought on foot. The Poles claimed twelve victories, including successful breakout attempts. The most striking Battle of Mokra pitted the Wołyńska Cavalry Brigade headlong against the 4th Panzer Division with 295 tanks. The Poles repelled waves of tank and infantry attacks for two days, giving the Germans "a bloody drubbing". although ,when in defensive position,polish cavalry,would fight dismounted,numerous charge where made against panzer,and,motorized unit,which themselves were taken by surprise,therefore ,fighting as infantry.
