17th century winged Hussars and Cossacks.  Smilie_PDT  Gorgeous looking game. Anyone seen the movies?

Haven't seen this yet, but the ref to winged hussars reminds me of a lovely story told to me by a Polish chap. Some of the historical refs to winged hussars refer to them charging accompanied by a noise like thunderclaps. This was characterised as literary licence until recreated winged hussars found that at a certain velocity achieved on horseback the feathers on their harness loudly and repeatedly emitted a cracking noise incredibly ferociously, bringing back to life a sound not heard for centuries. Apocyphal? Possibly, but just maybe, an example of re-enactment illuminating the past.
