Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

By 1400 the long running conflict between the Order of Teutonic Knights and Poland and Lithuania was coming to a head, partly as a result of the Orders meddling in the internal politics of its neighbours. In June 1410 King Wladislaw Jagiello of Poland invaded the Orders territory with a powerful allied army including all the enemies of the Teutonic Knights - Poles, Lithuanians, Russians, Bohemians, Hungarians, Tartars and Cossacks. This book recounts how, when the armies clashed on the wooded, rolling hills near the small village of Tannenberg, the Teutonic Knights suffered a disastrous defeat from which their Order never recovered.

Synopsis:

Defeat at Tannenberg marked the beginning of the end for the Teutonic Knights. In 1410, the Order's Polish, Lithuanian, Russian, Tartar and Cossack enemies joined forces to invade Teutonic territory - this book describes the clash at Tannenberg in the light of its lasting effects.

Synopsis:

In June 1410 an army of Poles, Lithuanians, Russians, Tartars and Cossacks invaded the territory of the Teutonic Knights. When the armies clashed at the Battle of Tannenberg it resulted in a defeat for the order from which it would never recover.
