Polish Legion serving Germany

Post by AHK » 18 Jun 2018 13:09

Can anyone clear up the Polish Legion that served under the Germans. Recently bought the Osprey Book on the Polish Legions, but it only confuses the issue for me. There is a chapter on the GP(Greater Polish) Army, but it never really clears up the matter.
Thanks,
AHK

The Polish Legions were an independent formation of the Austro-Hungarian Army, but they refused to serve under the Germans.

Are you sure? I see GP units with German equipment.

In this case it must be Royal Polish Army.
