im enjoying "knights" but its tough to read off the computer.
Let me add a little...Poles, specially students of the junior high schools are not fascinated by "The Teutonic Knights" because this book is their obligatory reading. The same problem touches older students - I mean "The Deluge"...but to be serious - I advice you "The Trilogy" (filmed) -
- 1. "With Fire and Sword ", 2. "The Deluge", 3. "Fire in the Steppe"
But - I am impressed, since ages, by Józef Ignacy Kraszewski ( regarded as second H. Sienkiewicz) and his fiction and non fiction novels! He wrote only...232 volumes ( there are 88 historical among them).
