Description  more details

"Winged Hussars is an exceptional album. Similarly rich iconographic material, showing the hussars and their gear and dating from the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries, has never been collected before. It shows the true appearance of the hussars in the era before the 19th-century illustrators falsified their image.
The album contains numerous descriptions of this force, also never before collected in a single volume, all dating from the period when the hussar troops were in existence. They describe not only the appearance, but also the customs, tactics and organisation of the force. In addition, these texts reveal how the hussars were perceived in Europe; it is evident that from the lat 16th until the late 17th century they were seen as the best, the most effective, and also the most beautiful calvary in the world.

Husaria Rzeczpospolitej to album wyjatkowy. Po raz pierwszy zebrano tak bogaty material ilustracyjny z XVI, XVII i XVIII wieku pokazujacy husarzy i ich ekwipunek. Dzieki temu mozna zobaczyc, jak naprawde wygladali zanim dziewietnastowieczni artysci zafalszowali ich wizerunek. Pozycje wzbogacono o liczne opisy tego rycerstwa, nigdy dotad nie zebrane w jednej publikacji, a powstale w epoce istnienia husarii. Dzieki temu poznajemy nie tylko wyglad husarzy, ale takze ich obyczaje, taktyke, organizacje. Ponadto dowiadujemy sie, jak ich postrzegano. W Europie od konca XVI do konca XVII wieku widziano w husarii najlepsza i najpiekniejsza kawalerie swiata".
