The mighty Winged - Hussars. The Angels of War.
With the Battle of Lubiszew in 1577 the 'Golden Age' of the husaria began. Until the Battle of Vienna in 1683, the Polish-Lithuanian hussars fought countless actions against a variety of enemies, and rarely lost a battle. In the battles of Battle of Lubiszew in 1577, Byczyna (1588), Kokenhausen (1601), Kircholm (1605), Kłuszyn (1610), Trzciana (1629), Chocim (1673) and Lwów (1675), the Polish-Lithuanian hussars proved to be the decisive factor often against overwhelming odds.
In all of these battles, they were victorious despite the fact that the hussars often had fewer men than their opponents. In the Battle of Kluszyn, the Russians had 35,000 troops, Crown of Poland only 6,800. However Poland came out of the battle as the victor.
