Started Sienkewicz's Knights of the Cross. I've read his famous Triogy, With Fire and Sword, The Deluge, and Sir Michael (what is with the translation? The Polish title is Pan Wolodyewskij, and the Russian translation Пан Володыевский, how one earth did they get Michael from that?). It's pretty good so far though it's supposed to be a weaker work of his. It deals with the era of Timur the Lame, and the Christianizing of Lithuania, Yadwiga, Yagaylo, Duke Vitovt, etc. and of course the titular crusaders of the German Order. Sienkewicz is of course most famous for Quo Vadis.
