Abstract

EN General Haller’s army returned to Poland in 1919, and with it came 1 Tank Regiment to Łodz, which was equipped with the most modern tanks in the world - Renault FT. The article presents the results of research, which focus on the use of the first subunit of Polish tanks in combat. An important part of the research was to present the course of the first Polish tank battles near Bobrujsk (28.08.1919), which were successfully supported by infantry units in the fight against the Red Army. The presented results are not limited to the description of combat operations but are the basis for presenting tactical conclusions related to the use of tanks on the battlefield at the time.
