Written by David Nicolle and Witold Sarnecki
Illustrated by Gerry Embleton
This book describes the organization and illustrates the equipment of the armies that shaped the remarkably varied and colourful history of medieval Poland. It traces them from the birth of the Christian kingdom in the 10th century, through the 'Northern Crusades' and the wars against the Teutonic Knights, to the extraordinary 15th century expansion under the Jagiello kings, and the first confrontations with the Ottoman Turks. The text is illustrated with an unusually rich collection of memorial sculptures, early paintings, photographs and drawings of surviving artefacts, and has full colour reconstructions by the respected medieval specialist Gerry Embleton.
