English adopted its alphabet, except for the letters j, u, and w, from the one used by the Romans to represent the sounds of Latin, and the fit was not an exact one.
English is a Germanic language that has borrowed many words from French, Dutch, and other languages, and the result is a phonological mishmash in which certain letters are pronounced differently depending on the origin of the words they appear in.
Nonetheless, English sound and spelling were not all that far apart until the advent of printing in the 15th and 16th centuries, which helped to freeze English spelling while its pronunciation underwent dramatic changes, principally in the system of long vowels, which is known as the Great Vowel Shift.

One such word is thought to be horde (horda in Polish) although the exact origin of the word is difficult to establish.
Other words have been changed to fit the Polish spelling (often by adding Polish grammatical features), but the pronunciation of these words remains mostly fairly close to that of the original English words.
The main reason for the 'borrowing' of these words is not simply the fact that there were no words for such things in Polish, but that there was no time to create new words because of the speed with which the technology developed.
