en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Hodów (I know, I know - (((Wikipedia))). I couldn't find a better English source, and I don't speak Polish. Sorry about that.)

The Battle of Hodów was a battle between the Kingdom of Poland and Crimean Khanate forces, fought in June 1694 in the Ruthenian Voivodeship of the Crown of the Kingdom of Poland, near the village of Hodów (now in Zboriv Raion, Ternopil Oblast, Ukraine). Often it is called Polish Thermopylae, like the Battle of Wizna.

In June 1694 Tatar Muslims forces invaded Polish territory with the aim to pillage the countryside and capture prisoners for ransom. The Polish forces sent to stop them consisted of 7 chorągwie of hussars and pancerni from Okopy Świętej Trójcy and Szaniec Panny Marii strongholds, approximately four hundred men in total; historian Mirosław Nagielski estimates 100 hussars and 300 pancerni. Tatar numbers were estimated at twenty-five to seventy thousand, with forty thousand being the most commonly quoted figure. Also, Jan III Sobieski, the king of Poland at the time, mentioned the figure of forty thousand.

The first encounter took place on the fields near Hodów. The Polish cavalry charged the 700-strong Tatar vanguard and made them withdraw. Shortly afterwards Polish forces retreated to Hodów village due to overwhelming enemy numbers, and proceeded to fortify themselves using heavy wooden fences left there from earlier Tatar invasions. For the next 6 hours Polish troops resisted relentless Tatar attacks. Even after the Polish ran out of bullets, they continued to fire at the enemy, using Tatar arrows as improvised ammunition for their guns.

Unable to defeat the Poles, Tatars sent Polish-speaking Lipka Tatars to convince the Polish troops to surrender. When the Polish commander refused, the Tatars withdrew to Kamieniec Podolski and gave up on the entire invasion, having gained nearly nothing despite large troop numbers.

I heard some shit that the Muslims don't aim because it's heretical. If you're aiming down the sights you're not putting your faith in Allah. And with their tactics of running straight at the enemy praising Allah it's no wonder that there was such a difference in outcome.

not only that but read up on honest accounts of their ability to function militarily. They were only an actual military threat before ranged weapons made large scale melee combat archaic. And with melee combat they only ever had the advantage in numbers. The reason for this is they either refuse or can not work in tactical units that require delegated authority. Basically anything more complicated than fighting in units were there is only one commander i.e. a general shouting 'attack' they function like shit. They can not well coordinate even the simplest of modern combat maneuvers. I had the misfortune of having to attempt to train them in Iraq. The most basic bitch concept in the military is bounding. I would expect a platoon of 10 year old boys to pick it up well within a single day of training. All it is, is closing a distance as a unit while under fire, either attacking a fortified position or counter-attacking when ambushed. A platoon is divided up into squads and the squads into fire teams. Squad leader shouts "fire team 1" or "fire team 3" and that fire team advances, they get up off the ground and sprint for approximately three seconds, they judge this time by mentally saying "I am up, he see's me, I am down" And in this fashion your squad can close the gap while under fire while never allowing an enemy shooter to take a well aimed shot. this is figured that it takes about 3 seconds for a shooter to identify a new target, adjust their weapon, get a good sight picture and pull the trigger, but even the best shooter will probably wind up firing reflexively, i.e. jerking the trigger or putting torque on the barrel, which will affect their accuracy

It's retardedly simple
Sgt: "Team one"
You: "Oh shit that's me, I'm team one"
You get up "Im up", run "he sees me", dive "I'm down"
Sgt: "Team three"
You: Ok thats not me, I'll lay down some suppressing fire and wait til I am called again

Might as well try explaining calculus to a newborn. They just couldn't fucking get it. It was truly a sight to behold. As soon as they would start it would be all wrong and by the time a handful of iterations of "get up, run and dive" they would be so far spread out that many of them couldn't hear the squad leader shouting and would either stay put or get up and run in a confused manner.

And this was after a months of training. And ya know what they did with it? Kek. They decided they were operators now and tried to attack my combat outpost. It was absolutely ridiculous. We didn't even bother getting up, just watched as iraqi police tried attacking our perimeter and wound up in a 45 minute fire fight with iraqi army faggots that were manning one of the guard towers. 45 fucking minutes of shooting and not a single injury on either side.

The Polish charge
Because the Spanish forces could not easily be outflanked by infantry movement, and Napoleon was impatient to proceed, he ordered his Polish Chevaux-Légers escort squadron of 125 men[b] to charge the Spaniards and their fortified artillery batteries. To that number must be added members of other squadrons, totaling some 450 men[citation needed], but these entered the battle later. The charge of 125 against the batteries was joined by Niegolewski's platoon returning from reconnaissance. It is not clear, however, whether the number included only front-line troops (sabres) or all the soldiers in the units. Napoleon issued no written orders. Jan Kozietulski, who commanded the 3rd squadron that day, mentioned that he called, "Lekka jazda kłusem!" ("Light cavalry at the trot!") and, passing the little bridge, added, "En avant, Vive l'Empereur!" (Forward, long live the Emperor!")

Some western authors have assumed that Napoleon had gone out of his mind in ordering the Poles to charge batteries of 16 cannon over several kilometers of extremely difficult terrain. Others, however, think Napoleon ordered only the closest battery to be taken, in order to open the way for his infantry, and that Kozietulski had misunderstood the order. No matter – once the charge had begun, and the chevaux-légers found themselves under fire from the second battery, they had no choice but to press the attack, as the horses went to the highest speed and were unable to stop. They took the second and third batteries but only a few chevaux-légers reached the last battery, and the Spanish attempted to recapture it. It was then that Napoleon saw his chance and immediately committed the other squadrons.

Anti-White "poles are best" d&c bait and bullshit apologetics.
who cares if they're swarming Britain and Germany like locusts, crashing the public services, funneling funds and tax taken from hard working natives out of the country, and abusing the welfare system to raise families back in Poland the 'Polish baby boom' is build on stolen wealth, they won a battle hundreds of years ago, so it's ok.

That's not the only bit, the only way the Ottoman Empire was a threat was their use of ex-christian Slave Soldiers, the Janissary Corps, and that was because they cared for their guns and took the time to learn to aim because "The Lord aids those whom aid themselves" That and the entire muslim ethos is just fatalism taken to a horrific extreme, where you have literally no control at all and all you can do is submit to fate and ALLah willing survive. Its a brutal existence, and most of their warfare tactics are merely a means of surplus beta male population control.

Why Arabs Can't Fight - The Arab Culture Theory

The Arab Culture Theory asserts that the poor performance of Arab armies in battle is caused by culturally-regular behavior and patterns of thought among Arab military personnel, particularly junior officers. It focuses on a number of particular traits which sociologists, anthropologists, and political psychologists of the Middle East agree are salient elements of the dominant Arab culture.

Arab culture tends to promote conformity with group norms over innovation and independent thinking.

Arab culture tends to promote a rather severe deference to authority which discourages initiative among subordinates.

Arab culture tends to promote the avoidance of shame at all costs which discourages an individual from accepting responsibility and encourages the manipulation of information to conceal shameful acts.

Arab culture tends to promote a fierce loyalty to the group which encourages individuals to shield friends and relatives from from shame and reinforces the emphasis on conformity.

Arab culture tends to consider manual labor to be shameful, and considers technical and scientific work as a form of manual labor.

The theory predicts that these patterns of culturally-regular behavior will produce identical patterns of behavior on the battlefield which are crippling to Arab armies and air forces. These patterns of military ineffectiveness can be boiled down to four pervasive problems:

Arab militaries suffer from severe problems with tactical leadership. Arab junior officers demonstrate little initiative, creativity, flexibility, or capacity for independent action in combat. These leave Arab ground and air forces incapable of fighting maneuver battles or improvising ad hoc operations in the heat of battle.

Arab militaries are frequently paralyzed by poor information flows. Arab junior officers and enlisted personnel regularly dissemble, exaggerate, obfuscate, and lie to conceal mistakes and unpleasant news, no matter how large or small.

Arab military personnel have extremely limited technical skills. As a result, Arab armed forces rarely are able to take full advantage of their weapons and equipment.

Arab militaries have difficulty maintaining their equipment because Arab technicians do not understand how to properly care for sophisticated machinery and most Arab military operators do not understand the need for constant preventive maintenance.

I have something you might also enjoy, user. A Zig Forumslack describes the founding of Islam with extreme candor and our shared sense of humor, hell, some of the book reads like moonman lyrics, specially in describing sharia law and how it allows a mudslime woman to use a corpse's dick as a dildo as long as she washes out afterwards. No Joke.
