Fascinating story actually. The American Nazi Party and the Muslim Brotherhood (Malcolm X) literally wanted the same thing. Leaders of both met several times and attended rallies on both sides.

ETA: Don't get me wrong, they were not friends, but most of the leaders from each side realized they had the same agenda.

quote:

On September 1, 1939, German forces invaded Poland without any formal declaration of war. This took the Polish army by surprise. At that time, Poland was still building and modernizing their military.
So, they were left to fight with anything they had including the horse cavalry from WWI. As a result, Polish soldiers mounted machine guns and antitank rifles on their horses. They also carried their sabers to the battlefield.
The 18th Pomeranian Uhlans’ cavalry charge became the last cavalry charge on horseback in history.

Hard to believe those photos were only 40-45 years ago.

I did some googling about this photo and found out that it isn't actually from the Great Depression. It was taken in 1948. It has an interesting backstory:
