The loss of independence in the late XVIII Century (between 1795 and 1918 Poland was divided between Russia, Prussia/Germany and Austria/Austro-Hungarian Empire) didn't exactly turn Poles into pacifists, either. This period saw the infatuation with SinisterScythe in several uprisings, and Poles (and with them, once more, the Polish cavalry which shone on many battlefields of [[NapoleonicWars the time]]) were amongst the most loyal allies of UsefulNotes/NapoleonBonaparte. Poles also served across the world as exiles; Casimir Pulaski and Tadeusz Kościuszko being two notable examples, serving in [[YanksWithTanks the Continental Army]] of the infant United States during UsefulNotes/TheAmericanRevolution. Pulaski is commemorated as "the father of American cavalry". Polish officers also served in the Austrian and Russian armies during the period of occupation.
