I have to know what weapon, armored fighting vehicles, warplanes and helicopters the Polish Army owns.
I was so excited about learning about all the Russian, Soviet, German, Czechoslovakian, American and Polish stuff…
Polish general, military adjutant of Chief of State Józef Piłsudski, politician, poet and diplomat Bolesław Wieniawa-Długoszowski with Piłsudski himself.
Wieniawa-Długoszowski was the most colorful character of Second Polish Republic. He is said to have been a typical Polish cavalryman, Warsaw’s favorite, often considered as a reveler but also as an upstanding soldier. His story is very interesting but tragic at the same time. Being in deep sorrow because of his impossibility to return to miliary service and fight for Poland, Wieniawa-Długoszowski comitted suicide by jumping out of the window of his apartment in New York on 1 July 1942.
