"The Teutonic Knights is an epic of medieval times and national destiny, ranking as one of the highest achievements from the pen of Henryk Sienkiewicz, the Nobel Prize winner for Literature in 1905." "The novel follows the adventures of Macko, a resourceful and wise veteran of war, and his young nephew, Zbyszko, the symbol of a maturing nation, as they struggle, along with the unified peoples of Poland and Lithuania, against the oppressive religious military order, the Teutonic Knights. Among the many memorable characters are Jurand, a merciless, bitter fighter consumed with revenge; his daughter, the innocent Danusia, a girl of twelve who must face the barbarity of the German knighthood; the strong-willed Jagienka, equally adept at shooting a crossbow or administering an estate; Hlawa, a Czech squire of noble birth who is as quick with his wit as he is with his axe; Sanderus, a peddler of religious relics and indulgences whose earthly cravings seem greater than any spiritual needs." "A host of other memorable characters fills the canvas set against lush, almost magical forests, dangerous marshes replete with tales of human heads walking on spider legs, winter blizzards that blanket the world in a white wonderland - all at once beautiful and foreboding. Splendid castles are described here, court hunts, single combats that test valor and strength. The customs of knights with their code of honor and feelings of love are adroitly explored. The entirety culminates in one of the most important battles in medieval history, the Battle of Grunwald." "The Teutonic Knights was published in America in 1900 in various competing translations of erratic quality. Not until 1943 did a translation worthy of this masterpiece appear, but unfortunately its release was limited to Great Britain. It is this translation that has been revised and edited by Miroslaw Lipinski with an eye for both fluidity in the English language and fidelity to the original Polish."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Not very good, perhaps, but I very much enjoyed it. ( )

Historical novel about the age of knights. It's relatively fast pacing and interesting but I have a feeling that I would've enjoyed it much more in my teenage years. Now the dated look of life, glorification of war, the blind faith infiltrating the everyday life and treating women as second rate beings just alienating me. ( )

İkinci cildini henüz okuma fırsatı bulamadım fakat kitap beklemediğim kadar iyiydi, gereksiz ayrıntılardan sıyrılmış, klişe olmaktan oldukça uzak ve hakkında pek yazılmamış bir zaman dilimi ve coğrafyada geçince bana böyle de gelmiş olabilir pek tabi.
Kitaplarda en sevdiğim üç şey; savaş, saçma olmayan aşk ve tarih (Bir de uzun saçlı taş sarışın erkekleri ekstradan ekliyorum) bir araya gelmiş, bana fazla söz düşmez 5 yıldızı haketti. Asıl aklıma takılan bu kadar muhteşem bir kitap neden en son 1952'de basılır NEDEN! O kadar saçma sapan kitap basılsın bu harika eseri internette bile bulamayayım, tüm kütüphanenin altını üstüne getirsem de bulacağım o ikinci cildi aha da buraya yazıyorum. ( )

This book was a major disappointment. I am a big fan of Sienkiewicz's Trilogy and was excited about the prospect of reading this book which was reputed to be his masterpiece. The plot was plodding and dull and the characters were universally unappealing. The main character was an unattractive humorless numb-skull.

The book abounded in the colorful descriptions of medieval life in Poland which make Sienkiewicz's books so readable. Plus, there is plenty of interesting historical stuff that you didn't know about. However, long descriptions of the scenery were clouded by the knowledge that Sienkiewicz never saw Poland and was mostly making that stuff up. Makes you wonder about how much of the other stuff he made up. But his descriptions of the clothing and customs? I don't think you can make that stuff up, I love it.

My biggest disappointment was the almost total lack of humor. The Trilogy has tons of very funny laugh-out-loud dialogue, characters, and situations. I don't think I so much as chuckled through TTK.

One final point n the book's favor - there are some interesting and strong women in this story who are more than just decoration or baby boy generators (plenty of that, though. Seems like manly men only have male offspring, makes you wonder where the women come from.). They actually play important roles and exert influence in the events.

This book is only for die hard fans. ( )
