Item description for The Knights of the Cross by Henryk Sienkiewicz...
1900. Complete in One Volume. Regarded as the most outstanding and prolific Polish writer of the second half of the nineteenth century, the 1905 Nobel Prize winner, Henryk Sienkiewicz is perhaps best known for his epic historical novel Quo Vadis, which depicts early Christianity and the persecutions. Sienkiewicz was known for his gigantic scenes, bright contrasts and the epic sweep of his works. He was a master in creating mass-action scenes and battles. The Knights of the Cross is a noble historical romance. The time and scene of the story are set in the middle ages during the conquest of Pagan Lithuania by the military and priestly order of the Knights of the Cross. An interesting read-the strategic computer game, Knights of the Cross is based upon historical fact and Sienkiewicz's novel.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Knights of the Cross?
wonderful book - 1st volume! Dec 4, 2007
This is the reprint edition of a 19th century translation, where the book was translated *in 2 volumes*! This is volume 1 only! It gets 2 stars, because while I love the book, this is only parts I&II, part III was in the 2nd volume of the original edition, which for the life of me I can't find. i.e. if You want to finish the book, either You'll look for volume 2 in an antiquariate, or You'll buy a different, complete edition. (For a complete edition, though a slightly inferior translation, I recommend ISBN 0781804337 .)
