About the book

Even though this book was written at the turn of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries it still gets good reviews. It's on of the few books that are difficult to put down. Some people read it several times. Its language may be a little aged but the message is always current. Good always beats evil. .Sienkiewicz, who also wrote Quo Vadis (for which he received the Nobel prize), tells a classic tale of heroic knights, chivalric love, faith, honor, love, and duty. It also depicts historic battles of medieval Poland.

Nice project! I'm surprised that nobody thought about this before, Krzyzacy being such a nice novel, and all..

Fantastic effort. I'm reading this at the moment in a slightly old-fashioned translation; this is much better. Congratulations on your work.

Hi - great project, very good books.

This first part which you are working on is indeed available elsewhere on the net (Gutenberg for instance) but I've never seen the second part (ending after the battle of Tannenberg/Grunwald) available online, would you know where to find it?

The second part is not available anywhere that I am aware of. There is a printed version, which you may be able to get from the local library. That part will be available here in about 6 months.
