Cossacks - The rough riders of Russia

These Cossacks from the river Don area pay no taxes, but are liable to military service from 18 to 50 and each must furnish his own horse. On the picture they show the hollow circle formation, their favourite one for defence. It did not help much against the German machine-guns.
