Hussar by SadDancer Hussar by SadDancer
My own drawing and composition.

Okay, what is it and why I drew it? Please read this, please :)

It is the most powerful cavalry in the world. Spartans at Thermopylae resisted very large army and this is Wow.
However, our Polish hussars overcame the armies of up to ten times greater than the composition of the Polish army. For example:
1605 - Battle of Kircholm
1610 - Battle of Kłuszyn
1621 - Battle of Chocim and much more....

Three times Hussars saved Europe from disaster. For 125 years they were undefeated in any battle. Spears of the Hussar had a length of more than 6 meters.

At the battle they used a hussars saber (by many historians believe that weapons was the most powerful melee weapons in the world)
History says that one of the hussars in the battle of Kłuszyn killed six Russians in one charge.

For his service in the army they not getting any money, they fought only for the glory and honor. Hussars wealth was compared with the wealth of the French kings from this period.
And the only ones in the world Poland with the hussars conquered Moscow in 1610.

Hussars said about himself that if the sky has fallen, they hold the sky on their blades of spears.
I'm very proud of this part of our history. ;'p
