About this Blog

This blog is a translation of a historical novel Krzyzacy (translated as: "The Knights of the Cross" or "The Teutonic Knights") written by Henryk Sienkiewicz and published in 1900.

The Teutonic Knights was the official name of the military order located in the northern part of Poland. The “Knights of the Cross” is a direct translation of polish word “Krzyzacy” a nickname used by Poles because the knights of this order wore black crosses on their armor.

The translation is a work in progress. When it's finished we hope to publish it in the book. There are already several translations of this book. We hope that this one will be easier for the English reader.
