Description  more details

"The Polish hussar was 'without doubt one of the most spectacular soldiers in the world'. Most dramatic of all hussar characteristics were the 'wings' worn on the back or attached to the saddle; their purpose has been hotly debated. The hussar's main offensive weapon was an impressive 4-5 metre lance (kopia). This book takes a close look at the origins and development of the Polish 'winged' hussars, and using many years' painstaking research drawn from unpublished Polish sources, provides a rounded view of the training, tactics, appearance and experiences of these legendary and fascinating warriors." Illustrations inside by Velimir Vuksic.
