    Recently I got a POW ID Card from Oflag VII A Murnau. It is for General Zygmunt Piasecki, only Cavalryman in II RP to win 3 classes of Virtuti Militari. That itself speaks volumes about him...

    In 1939 he commanded Krakowska Brygada Kawalerii. He was born in Krakow, and that makes him my homeboy.



    Here is a picture with Marshall Pilsudski during better times, General Piasecki is second from left.
