The Soviets used cavalry charges up until world war 2, usually to clear minefields. But then again, manpower was never an issues for the Russians. I also read somewhere, but I cannot confirm this, that Polish cavalry troops used to charge German tanks at the start of world war 2, believing that they were made from cardboard  :blink:. Again, I cannot confirm the source, so it may be just fake stories made by propaganda so...

Both are myths. Soviets did not use cavalry charges to clear minefields and Polish cavalry did not charge German tanks.

Regarding " ... and Polish cavalry did not charge German tanks."
I really saw that: an archive film lasting for few seconds, as part included in a documentary.

You chose a good moment for your photos at cemetery (close to dawn or sunset).
If the sun would have been be upper a little bit more, would have been perfect. :)

It reminds me of "The Charge of the Light Brigade" occurring during the Crimean War of the 1850’s. That also was not at all a wise decision, but because the participants had shown heroism, the British made several movies with this subject. I think even the Americans made at least one movie about it, in the days when Errol Flynn was great.

Returning to the cavalry charge of this topic ("our" charge), the same trend to forget the tactical mistake due to the heroism of the participants: I remember clearly that this matter was presented in a very good light as a primary school lesson in one of the school teaching books. I think it was in the Romanian (national language) teaching book, because in the history teaching book there were no novels or stories.
