Anyone living in Poland will have heard of Henryk Sienkiewicz, one of the country’s most famous historical novelists. He is best known for his “Trilogy” of historical novels – With Fire and Sword, The Deluge, and Fire in the Steppe – set in the 17th-century Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth.
‘With Fire and Sword’ (1884) chronicles the 17th century Cossack revolt known as the Chmielnicki Uprising. ‘Fire in the Steppe’ (title of the original: Pan Wołodyjowski), written in 1888, follows the wars between Poland and the Ottoman Empire in the late 17th century. The book describes the efforts of the protagonist, a renowned Polish knight, Michał Wołodyjowski, to save Poland from an invasion by the Sultan of Turkey. A lot of the action revolves around the Polish border town of Kamenyets, and the book concludes with a huge battle after a bitterly freezing night of rain between the Polish and allied forces led by King Jan Sobieski against the Turkish pagan Hussein Pasha. Sobieski and his lancers are victorious, although Pan Michal Wołodyjowski dies from his wounds, and a victorious Thanksgiving Mass is held in the infidels camp.
