During the WWII Russian, Polish, German, French and Italian cavalry regiments existed. And they really used swords. The use against tanks is obviously a fallacy, but in the sudden attacks against infantry the swords worked!
So, these armies had not only CARRIED swords, not only USED swords, but even COUNTED on them in battle!
