Polish Winged Hussar 1556-1775, Paperback Book

Polish Winged Hussar 1556-1775 Paperback

Illustrated by V. Vuksic

Part of the Warrior series


This book examines the origins and development of the Polish Winged Hussars.

Using many years' painstaking research drawn from unpublished Polish sources, the author provides a rounded view of the training, tactics, appearance and experiences of these legendary and fascinating warriors.

The most dramatic of all Hussar characteristics were the wings worn on the back or on the saddle, although not all Hussars wore them, and their purpose has been fiercely debated.

The Hussars terrified the Turks, Tatars, Muscovite boyars, Ukrainian Cossacks and Swedes, who did everything to avoid facing them directly in battle.
