comment When was the last cavalry charge?
This is incorrect. Perhaps this was the last use of cav as a separate combat arm, but the last charge was March 1, 1945 when the the 1st Warsaw Cavalry Brigade charged through German lines to return to their Soviet allies.

I like your answer and you got my +1, but it could probably do without the caps for emphasis. Italics perhaps?
