  1. Poland-Lithuania: Liberates Austria from Ottomans
    Austria: Thanks bro

    XVIII Century Austria: Give me your land now haha.
    IX Century Poland-Lithuania: Dissapears

    Austria, Prussia and Russia: LAUGH

  2. Well its pretty obvious as a historian myself. The reason they wore the wings was to "scare" the enemy. Imagine 1,000 of those dudes sprinting full speed. The feathers would flap in the wind like they were warrior angels coming to take their lives. Since people were much more religious and fearful of paranormal things, they would freak out and flee.

  3. This is the only time that I am proud to be Polish. We could destroy armies, Russian, Swedish, German. One time some Swedish soldiers deserted cause they said “I won’t fight the winged hussars, they are too powerful for us”
