From Library Journal:

The dawn of the 15th century presaged one of the epic battles in central Europe. The Order of Teutonic Knights ruled Prussia with an iron fist and plundered its neighbors. The Polish-Lithuanian Kingdom, a confederation wary of the Order, was reluctant to fight yet possessed the era's fiercest knights. Among these, Macko of Bogdaniec and his nephew, Zbyszko, are catalysts in the events leading to war. When the Order kidnaps Zbyszko's wife, their gallant search for her inspires all the Polish knights, and their victories set the stage for a broader conflagration. In his final work, Sienkiewicz ( Fire in the Steppe , LJ 6/1/92) tells a classic tale of knights-errant and chivalric love, of vast powers struggling in the early historic battles of his beloved Poland. His consistent themes of faith, honor, love, and duty mark his unstinting belief that greatness exists within each individual and that from great individuals arise great nations. Recommended for public and academic libraries.
