Overview

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.
