This article is an attempt to analyse specific physical and mental profile of the Polish military masculinity in selected prose texts on the Polish Legions. The author explores short stories by Juliusz Kaden-Bandrowski and Zygmunt Kisielewski and a novel Odznaka za wierną służbę by Andrzej Strug – the texts which create the legend of the Legions with its protagonists having gentle features, as if shaped by the native landscape and Polish romantic military tradition. Despite a relatively monolithic character of the Polish presentation of the military masculinity, the literary texts allow for the insight into its problematic nature and reveal the ambivalences and aporias which are part of a soldier’s habitus in the era of the war of machines.
