The General Story of Jan Karol Chodkiewicz
In 1605, after commanding the Polish Knights to ambush the battlefield flank, Polish Army Commander Chodkiewicz ordered a feint attack on the enemy's center before retreating, luring the Swedish Army into the plain.
Despite their solid formation, Chodkiewicz relied on the cavalry's battlefield advantage to crush their defense. He led the Polish Knights in a charge from the flank, first wiping out all of the Swedish cavalries, then charging the front and rear of the Swedish infantry's two formations. In the end, Chodkiewicz won this battle of outnumbered forces with speed and fewer losses, earning him a place in history as one of the greatest victories of the English Commonwealth Cavalry.
His tactics were famous and often imitated by his contemporaries, and his unwavering resolve inspired many generations of soldiers who looked to him as an example of a true leader.
