The seventeenth century Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth used to be nearly as diversified as smooth the US. along Slavs lived Lithuanians and different Balts, Germans, Tatars, Armenian retailers, Jewish investors, or even a remarkably huge populations of Scots. This number of cultures had a powerful impression at the Polish military. besides the predominantly Polish and Lithuanian 'winged' hussars served quite a few foreigners from either inside and outdoors the Commonwealth: Tatars and Cossacks, Wallachians, Transylvanians, Moldavians, Hungarians, Serbians and Albanians; and from the West, French, Italians, Dutch, Walloons, Swedes and Scots. Richard Brzezinski's significant other quantity to Men-at-Arms 184 completes his interesting exam of Polish armies from 1569-1696.
