The cavalry in the Polish Army had long and everlasting traditions - since the middle ages those formations were the best and the most elite in the whole military. The memory of legendary accomplishments of the huzars and ulans were still vivid, especially after the independence in 1918. All that, combined with the need for fast, mobile units as cavalry or mechanized divisions, resulted in the development of well-trained cavalry. Polish Army could not afford to develop and produce enough tanks and vehicles, so the expanding mounted formations were seen as a solution to the problem, even if only temporary.
In the elite units of cavalrymen, the best of the best were officers, not only with the outstanding military schooling but also the best education available. The level of military schools and academies was extremely high and cavalry officers were seen as the intellectual and military elite. As it turned out during the September 1939 it was not invalid thinking - Polish cavalryman proved their worth and patriotism. Using ambitious and unpredictable tactics those units surprised and circled German forces numerous times, inflicting heavy losses to the enemy. All that could not be achieved if not for the excellently trained and committed officers, who lead their men against the aggressors.
