This volume includes a “Detailed Biography” of our author, Henryk Sienkiewicz.
With Fire And Sword is the first book of the Henryk Sienkiewicz's trilogy. The story is set in the 17th century and follows the struggle of the kingdom of Poland to maintain its unity in the face of the Cossack-led peasant rebellion. The book well shows the passions, good and evil, which rule men. It beautifully displays the courage of doing what is noble at all costs, and graphically portrays the depths of depravity to which people can sink. The description of deeds of bravery are uplifting, those of barbaric brutality are shocking. Sienkiewicz mastered historical novels that vividly put readers in places as distinct as 17th century Poland and Ancient Rome. He is still well regarded today for novels like "With Fire and Sword", "The Deluge", “Quo Vadis”, and "Fire in the Steppe".
This brilliant historical romance has been universally praised. The character of Zagloba is one of the raciest and most remarkable in the whole range of fiction. Sienkiewicz's vivid language made this novel one of the most popular books about that particular place and era. All three novels are available on TLC BOOKS, Edited.

This is really good story which shows how was it then ... I`m Polish and I had to read this book when I was at High School, but it wasn`t so easy. I read it but without understanding. When the film came I could finaly enjoy it. It`s a pity that the film is sooooo long .... at least may be a bit dull. The costiums and actors playing well.
