Blitzkrieg - Mounted Kawalerii Regiment

Description

The regiments of the twelve Brygada Kawalerii (Cavalry Brigades) represent the elite of the Polish Army. The men volunteered for a two-year term rather than the single year of the infantry conscripts. The quality of their officers and men provided them with their only significant advantage over the Germans during the campaign in September 1939.

The Polish Army consider horse cavalry essential in a country lacking a good road network and plentiful motorized vehicles. The cavalry provide the army with its most capable and mobile elements.

The army has forty cavalry regiments, consisting of three Pulk Szwolezerów (pronounced poowk shvol-ezh-er-oov) light horse regiments, 27 Pulk Ulanów (pronounced poowk uwan-oov) or lancer regiments, and 10 Pulk Strzelców Konnych (pronounced poowk stzhel-tsoov kon-nih) or mounted rifle regiments. Despite their titles, these regiments have identical roles, organization and equipment, although there are some slight variations in uniforms, particularly for the light horse regiments who trace their lineage back to the chevaux-légers of Napoleon’s army a century ago.

Despite lances being obsolete, some regiments took their lances to war and have used them well on Germans who make the mistake of thinking that the day of cavalry is over.
