Tannenberg 1410: Disaster for the Teutonic Knights

Stephen Turnbul


via 1400 the lengthy working clash among the Order of Teutonic Knights and Poland and Lithuania used to be coming to a head, partially as a result Order’s meddling within the inner politics of its neighbours. In June 1410 King Wladislaw Jagiello of Poland invaded the Order’s territory with a robust allied military together with all of the enemies of the Teutonic Knights – Poles, Lithuanians, Russians, Bohemians, Hungarians, Tartars and Cossacks. This e-book recounts how, while the armies clashed at the wooded, rolling hills close to the small village of Tannenberg, the Teutonic Knights suffered a disastrous defeat from which their Order by no means recovered.
