Hello everyone, I have a really random thread for today about a topic I have put a lot of thought into over the years, Cavalry's involvement in WW2. Cavalry in WW1 served a pretty prominent role in may major nations combat strategy, (Italy, U.K, Australia, France) and also provided mobility to divisions without vehicles. For the most part, Cavalry took heavy casualties and with increased destructiveness of artillery and gunfire, effective attacks were rare (with a few exceptions of course, Beersheeba....CAC). I understand little when it comes to Cavalry use in WW2, so how effective were they in combat. I know during the German and Soviet Invasion of Poland, Polish Cavalry (occasionally with success) fought the invaders frequently. No, they did not charge German Panzers, they merely ran into them after chasing infantry away. Italy used cavalry in the Eastern front, like the charge at Izbushensky. U.S soldiers in Bataan in 1941, attacked Japanese soldiers with Cavalry with considerable success. Chinese and Greek soldiers fought off the Germans, Italians, and Japanese with Cavalry on occasions. Were some of these incidents as I mentioned earlier, just luck and circumstance, or could Cavalry have been more effective? I truly don't know, and I was hoping someone had a thought or an idea about this. Thank you to all who respond!
