Description
 
Winged Hussars is an exceptional album. Similarly rich iconographic material, showing the hussars and their gear, dating from the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries has never been collected before. It shows the true appearance of the hussars in the era before the 19th century illustrators falsified their image.
This album contains numerous descriptions of this force, also never before collected in a single volume, all dating from the period when the hussar troops were in existence. They describe not only the appearance, but also the customs, tactics and organization of the force. In addition, these texts reveal how the hussars were perceived in Europe; it is evident that from the late 16th until the late 17th century there were seen as the best, the most effective, and also the most beautiful cavalry in the world.
Source texts are given in the original version and into translations into three languages: Polish , English and French; this will hopefully serve to spread the fame of the Polish hussar force worldwide.

Beautiful hand made replica of a Polish karabela from the XVII century during the time of Jan Sobieski engraved with the Latin motto of his Polish Winged Cavalry -"Amor Patriae Nostra Lex" - Love Of Homeland Is Our Law. Perhaps one of the most famous type Perhaps Poland's most famous king, he was also arguably the country's most talented general. The son of a famous soldier, Jakub Sobieski, and grandson of Hetman Zolkiewski, his career path was chosen for him, and he became Grand Hetman in 1668. The Polish hussar was, to quote one of many foreign visitors impressed by them, 'without doubt one of the most spectacular soldiers in the world'. Most dramatic of all hussar characteristics were the 'wings' worn on the back or on the saddle; their purpos Jan Sobieski was one of the most extraordinary and visionary monarchs of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth from 1674 until his death. He was a man of letters, an artistic person, a dedicated ruler but above all the greatest soldier of his time.
