1920 - final charge

My alternate version of the Battle of Warsaw events, with the marshal Józef Piłsudski in his heavy mech, on the background :)
Illustration commemorating the 95 anniversary of the Battle of Warsaw. This battle is considered by many historians as one of the most important in the world’s history, since it changed the fate of Europe and stopped the Red Revolution. After the first world war, the atmosphere in Europe was filled with revolutionary thoughts. Bolsheviks decided to take advantage of this situation and started to move forward to the west with a huge army.
Poland was the first country to really be able to show them resistance. Our independence had only been restored for two years. Even that, Polish army has defeated the Bolsheviks and pushed away the specter of the communism from the Western Europe. Anyone hardly knows about this and it is a very interesting historical period. This is also the last time cavalry was so significantly used, hope you like it!

( I used few reference photos in this work, what I think is kind of obvious, I prefer more raw & painterly style and no references in my work but sometimes it is necessary, here is a reference photo of the main character: https://www.google.pl/search?q=rekonstrukcja+bitwy+warszawskiej+w+ossowie+2012&biw=1760&bih=845&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0CAYQ_AUoAWoVChMIxOChv5b2xwIVJI9yCh1wNwBO#imgrc=pEFrUzth4EwVPM%3A )
