  3. The Polish Calvary never attacked Tanks with Lances. They carried Anti-Tank Rifles. They were very effective in taking out German Tanks. The myth was started by Goebbels to ridicule Poland. The Wołyńska Cavalry Brigade equipped with the Bofors 37 mm antitank gun beat the German Panzer Divisions in one of the first battles of the invasion; the Battle of Mokra.The Polish guns were actively used during the German and Soviet invasion of Poland in 1939. They managed to wipe out a Division's worth of German Tanks which was 309.

    Poland was attacked by both Germany & Russia & they managed to fight for 27 days before surrendering. On May 10, 1940 Germany attacked West. They entered France on the 12th &, 5 days later the French told Churchill the Battle is lost. France managed to make one counterattack but they retreated to Dunkirk on the 25th. By June 9th nearly all the French divisions had surrendered. So the Poles fought Russia & Germany as long as the combined forces of the French, English, Dutch, and Belgium armies fought the German army only.

  4. September 1, 1939 vs February 24, 2022. Germany invades Poland vs Russia invades Ukraine. History hates repeating, but loves rhyming. Instructive to watch these magnificent WW2 videos as we all slip into the rhyme of WW3.

  5. save we remember least we forget, for the future is our past and succumb to our hubris. Great men die when good men refuse to do nothing when evil looms on the horizon.
