Description

Translated from Google:

The 18th Infantry Division was then not only the best infantry unit among those at the disposal of Gen. Sikorski, but could also compete for priority in the entire Polish Army. It had an excellent staff and disciplined soldiers. Although she was bloodied in the battles on the Wkra, and in particular at Sarnowowa Góra, the commander of the 5th Army decided that it was suitable for closing the "Mlawa bottle" in the North Masovian bag.

The commander of this "iron division" was General Franciszek Krajowski, an excellent tactician, tough and reliable soldier, who never let himself be beaten by the famous Budyonny Konarmia. He fought dozens of skirmishes and battles with her, including great clashes at Ostrog, Buderaz, Dubno and Chorupan. The "eighteen" in the battle of Brody on August 3 also played an outstanding role. She, the first of the Polish units, was decorated with the resurrected Order of Virtuti Militari.

This division included the following regiments: 49th Infantry Regiment, known as the Hutsul regiment, commanded at that time by Capt. Szymon Kocur, 42nd Regiment commanded by Lt. Jan Tabaczynski, 144th Borderland Rifle Regiment (later 71st Infantry Regiment), commanded by Major Marian Ocetkiewicz and 145th Borderland Rifle Regiment (later 72nd Infantry Regiment), commanded by Major Witold Wartha. The organic composition of the 18th Infantry Division also included the 113th field artillery regiment (later the 18th papal regiment), the commander of which was Colonel Bujnicki.
