HAPPY HODOW DAY, Zig Forums!

Today marks the 325th anniversary of one of the worst spankings in military history; the battle of Hodów. I unfortunately can't find any English non-wikipedia sources, so without further ado;

From Wikipedia:

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 the Polish Thermopylae, like the Battle of Wizna.

In June 1694 Tatar Muslims forces raided 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 the Trenches of the Holy Trinity (Okopy Świętej Trójcy) and The Redoubt of Virgin Mary (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. John III Sobieski, the king of Poland at the time, also mentioned the figure of forty thousand.

The first encounter took place on the fields near Hodów. The 400-strong 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 arrowheads 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 replied "Come and get us if you can", the Tatars withdrew to Kamieniec Podolski and gave up on the entire raid, having gained nearly nothing despite large troop losses and vast numerical advantage.

King John III Sobieski made use of this outstanding victory to raise army morale: he paid generous compensation to those who lost their horses, financed treatment of wounded and rewarded those who captured enemy soldiers. In 1695 he also commissioned a statue commemorating the battle. This monument survived into modern times and was renewed in the summer of 2014, then officially unveiled during the celebration of 320th anniversary of the Battle, on 25 October 2014.

Turks getting their shit kicked in by a force 10 or more times less than theirs
Nothing new or unexpected, and the Turks did the same as well. Doesn't matter anyway since the rest of Europe cannibalized Poland a few years later hence why they have more respect for Turks than their neighbors since they honored and respected them which something no one including me likes to admit.

Forgot to add: As I understand it, Soviet forces had been stomping through the Polish countryside, and Jozef Pilsudski took command and held a last stand with all remaining Polish troops outside of Warsaw.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

They were literally the most kiked country of Europe.
So in a strange and completely shocking surprise, their "elites" sold the entire country piece by piece to foreign powers (Russia and Prussia/Austria).

We doing a cool battles thread? Here's my entry:
probably the only naval battle in Czech history
starts by legionaries capturing 2 commie steamers and just moving four howitzers onboard
sail it to the Baikal harbour
meet SS Baikal, a militarized icebreaker with proper cannons and machineguns, along with a port defense force
dick everything to death with just two shitty steamers with howitzers, taking minimum casualties

Do they just zerg rush the enemy like chinks? Lack of proper organization? Training? I can't grasp how such a big empire can be so pathetic against small countries and a decadent empire.

Simple, their armies were slave armies, the figured by having an overwhelming advantage in manpower could solve everything.

Basically this: . The moment the Turks lost the advantage of numerical superiority and overwhelming firepower, they were beaten by even a much smaller number of soldiers, peasants and women with pots of hot gulyás.

There was also the time that some guy's wife literally walked into a battle planning session while they were about to surrender, pulled out a knife, and forced a room full of grown men in full armor to launch an attack on the besieging Turks that caused heavy losses.

Oh yeah, she led the attack herself too.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Trembowla
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anna_Dorota_Chrzanowska

"After several days, shortages of food and water became severe, and Captain Chrzanowski decided to surrender. Chrzanowska(His wife) disagreed with this decision, and threatened to commit suicide if he proceeded. She convinced him to hold the fort, furthermore, Anna Dorota urged the defenders to carry out an attack on Turkish positions, resulting in heavy losses among the Ottomans. Chrzanowska’s determination is regarded to have raised the morale among the Poles, despite the fact that their losses were also heavy. The Turks ended the siege on October 11. "

you will never have a wife with balls the size of small countries
you will never have a wife who will literally kill herself to cleanse her shame if you ever do some chickenshit bullshit like surrender to shitskins
you will never even meet such an alpha female

Why live?

Also remember never to surrender to a Turk or a muslim (or to anyone in that regards). Apart from it being extremely cucked and shameful, mudshits are notorious of breaking their oath of "providing safe passage in case you give up".

Cuck. You fight to the last man and your last breath. Even then, if you have a means to spite the enemy with your death, do so.
Cover the place you're defending as well as yourself with explosives that only you can set off. Then when you're dying or have no other means to keep fighting, you get to blow the enemy up with you.

In the summer of 1675, a 30,000 strong Turkish-Tatar army under Sisman Ibrahim entered Red Ruthenia, a province of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. On July 27, the invaders captured Zbaraz, on September 11, Podhajce, and on September 20, the Turks approached Trembowla. The castle was defended by a small unit of 80 infantry soldiers, some members of the local nobility, supported by 200 poorly armed, untrained peasants and residents of the town, who fled to the castle. Before the siege, a unit of dragoons stationed here, but was ordered to leave Trembowla, due to food shortages. Polish forces were commanded by Captain Jan Samuel Chrzanowski, whose wife, Anna Dorota Chrzanowska (née Anna Dorota von Fresen), became immortalized after the siege.

she was German

Quran states that they should multiply like rats and just beat their enemies with numbers, also the timing of Black Plague in Europe made things easier for ottomans to invade since Black Plague didnt kill that many people in Anatolia to begin with.

Turks are basically mongols extensively dysgenized by islam to the point of trying to use the same zerg rush hit and run tactics mongol did but without mounted archery (since they were too deformed and mentally challenged for it by the unique islamic combination of miscegenation and inbreeding). The most idiotic part of them was that they tried to tone up Mongol intimidation tactics up to eleven combined with sunni muslim psychopathy and would execute everyone that would surrender in extravagantly torturous ways and that made their opponents increasingly eager to fight to death even when facing overwhelming numbers which was the only routine advantage of the turks' military.

Stalin was not leading the USSR during the Soviet-Polish war. He commanded an Army and was supposed to divert his army to help a rival during the Miracle of the Vistula but he had tard rage against one city (Lwow I think) and attacked there instead which saw both armies lose their attacks.

Davies argues that the Soviet failure was caused by its tardiness in moving forces in for a frontal attack on Warsaw. By contrast the Poles were speedy and motivated, making every day's delay a liability to the Soviets. Furthermore, there was poor coordination between the Soviet Western Command and the three armies of the Southwestern Command. In the political sphere, Davies argues, there was too much friction inside the Soviet Command. According to the historian Thomas Fiddick, rumors of disobedience to orders on the Soviet side by General Semyon Budyonny, or possibly even Joseph Stalin, were baseless. Moscow had decided for political reasons to reinforce the Crimean front at the expense of the Polish front. It meant it was replacing its goals of Europe-wide Communist revolution with a sort of "peaceful coexistence" with the West amidst internal consolidation.

I'm retarded and you're right, carry on.

The Jewish population at the time that existed for hundreds of years shockingly decided to betray the country and introduce a law that required further council decisions to be near unanimous. They then bribed council members to stop votes and began to partition the country itself to foreign powers until it was fully taken over. Both Democracy and Jews are responsible for the fall and America is under a similar path although Poland itself is starting to wisen up against (((foreign))) influence.
