I wanted to write about a group of Hussars light cavalry that wore black feathers head to toe. I saw a book from Poland with a drawing on the inside cover, but I have not been able to find out anything since. I hoping someone has information on them. I want to write a historical fiction based on their group as a special ops team with maybe a little magic.

I don't mind doing the research as I was 3 years into my last book, so any direction someone could point to and I'll start digging.

  • I have not been able to find out anything since To add to what Jos said, the Wiki article on Polish hussars is a good starting point for research. If you encounter specific questions you're welcome to ask them here, but otherwise an open ended request for information on a broad topic is not suitable for our format. – Semaphore Nov 8 '18 at 6:49
