This led to the cavalry being eventually phased-out and eventually abolished in 1955! Tanks, co-ordinated with artillery, infantry and airforce evolved into a much more effective striking and defence force that did not involve the risk of relatively high casualties experienced by the cavalry regarding horses (which are very high maintenance) as well as in men. However, all through the four-years of the Great Patriotic War (1941-1945), the Soviet Red Army Cavalry provided an important and vital anti-fascist force that directly took-on the forces of Nazi Germany and its allies from around the world (which were supported by the Catholic Church)! Although out-gunned and always facing the danger of total destruction from the modern technology deployed against them, the Red Army Cavalry utilised unusual tactics, surprise and bravery to overcome these problems!

Russia: Bonnie & Clyde Celebrate 77th Year of Victory Over Fascism! (10.5.2022)
I am not an expert of the biographies of these two professional gangsters from the Great Depression era of 1930s America! The US economy was only saved by the full mobilisation of the population for military service and industrial output for war! If this had not happened, capitalism in 1930s America looked like it was in terminal decline! The wealth WWII generated for the US, coupled with its armies occupying and taking lands overseas, ensured the US would becime a world power post-1945! Bonnie and Clyde, of course, both died together in a hail of police Bullets in and 1934 – a year after Hitler came to power – although Mussolini had been in power since 1922!
