Bitwa pod Komarowem III

by Marzena Jozefczyk August. 30, 2010 9351 views

The Battle of Komarów was one of the most important battles of the Polish-Bolshevik War. It took place on August 31, 1920, near the village of Komarów near Zamość. It was the biggest cavalry battle in the history of war since 1813 and the last great battle of any significance in which cavalry was used as such and not as mounted infantry.

The Battle of Komarów was a complete disaster for the Russian 1st Cavalry Army, which sustained heavy casualties and barely avoided being outflanked. After the battle, the morale of the 1st Cavalry Army collapsed, and the army which was once the most feared of the Soviet troops was no longer considered an effective fighting force.

Faktycznie, szerokie kąty robią wrażenie. A i inscenizacja super. Ja zwykle mam do czynienia z nieco starszą historią, więc tym bardziej chętnie popodziwiam coś bardziej współczesnego ;).
