A patriotic rendition (from the Polish perspective) of the relief of the siege of Vienna by King Jan Michael Sobieski of Poland. An adventure novel based on history, during a time of chivalry and glory. I loved this book! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 078180762X, Hardcover)

Sienkiewicz, one of the greatest storytellers in world literature, introduces a memorable cast of characters, ready for battle, duelling, or love in this last completed historical novel of the Nobel Prize winner. Breathing with life, gusto and passion, this book is set in one of the most turbulent and critical periods of European history. Above all it is the story of the tumultuous love between Anulka and Jacek, in what is the most lyrical of all Sienkiewicz love stories. This groundbreaking new translation also includes a new epilogue, narrating the events leading up to the glorious victory of the Christian forces led by King John Sobieski III. This epilogue has been carefully constructed by Miroslaw Lipinski, the translator, using seasonal historical accounts by Count John Sobieski (a distant relative of the king) and Count A J Orchowski.
