Written by Henryk Sienkiewicz
Translated by Miroslaw Lipinski

The last historical novel by Nobel Prize winner author was to be the beginning of a major sequel to the Trilogy. On the Field of Glory sets the stage for King Jan Sobieski III's victory against Turks in 1683. The novel does include some continuing characters from the Trilogy, along with new characters, which are some of the best in the Sienkiewicz canon. But the promise of a new trilogy was not to be. Sienkiewicz died in 1916. Fortunately, On the Field of Glory is a great read in its own right and represents at least one major point of interest for readers of Sienkiewicz's historical fiction: the memorable character of Anulka Sieninska is more fully rendered than any leading ladies of the original trilogy. This translation by Miroslaw Lipinski is a skillful blend of modern English with a touch of suitable antiquity so effective in the original language of Sienkiewicz. The epilogue by the translator provides useful commentary and additional background for a most glorious, in brief, period of Polish history.

HENRYK SIENKIEWICZ was born in Poland in 1846. His works include the famous trilogy (With Fire and Sword, The Deluge and Fire in the Steppe). He traveled throughout the world, including two years spent in America, and was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1905. Quo Vadis, originally published in Poland in 1896, was translated into more than forty languages. Sienkiewicz died in 1916.
