Summary/Abstract: "The end of the Uhlans’ epic" is the third part - after "The summer of Uhlans" and "The autumn of Uhlans" - a series of sketches by Bohdan Królikowski from the history of the cavalry of the Second Polish Republic. This book is a valuable and interesting item, even sensational in places. The author presents the organization and combat activities of cavalry regiments, which during the Second World War in the Polish Armed Forces in the West changed from horses to tanks and armored cars. In France (1939-1940) the cavalry formed reconnaissance units and the 10th Armored Cavalry Brigade. In the Middle East and North Africa fighters from the Carpathian Rifle Brigade organized and fought. After the fall of France, reconnaissance and armored units were created in Great Britain. Later, a cavalry was organized in the Polish Army in the USSR, and after the transition to the Middle East, reconnaissance and armored units were created. Cavalry regiments fought in Italy, northern France, Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany.
