the translation Sienkiewicz is a great storyteller His descriptions and plotting wonderful he relies a lot on dialogue In the hands of a capable novelist the stories are enthralling On the Field of Glory in the hands of Miroslaw Lipinski the story is turgid and purple Some of that fault lies with Sienkiewicz A note at the beginning of the novel states that the translator s intent was to render a translation that is as true in style spirit and content to the original as possible However it has been commonly reported that Sienkiewicz had his characters se the Polish language as he imagined it was spoken in the seventeenth century which in reality was far similar to 19th century Polish than he imagined This dialogue is what bloats the narrative I previously read and enjoyed Sienkiewicz s In Desert and Wilderness With Fire and Sword The Deluge and Fire in the Steppe The first of these four books was translated by Miroslaw Lipinski Lipinski also translated On the Field of Glory I enjoyed In Desert and Wilderness immensely Lipinski was not handicapped in translating In Desert and Wilderness by the imagined style of dialogue sed by characters in In the Field of Glory Hence it s a snappy read The other three books Sienkiewicz s Trilogy were translated by WS Kuniczak a bilingual Polish born British trained American novelist whose passion for the Trilogy led him to suspend his own literary career abandon his own writing and sacrifice than eight years to this gigantic task Kuniczak mirrors Sienkiewicz s imagery recreates his language within another culture and bridges the gaps in readers nderstanding of those distant and Misfortune Cookies (When the Fat Ladies Sing unknown historical events Thomas Napierkowski s Introduction to The Deluge So read Sienkiewicz s other superb novels Skip Lipinski s translation of Sienkiewicz s On the Field of Glory Dated but solid story of Poland prior to the late 17th century invasion by the Ottomans While this focuses on a love story there is much about the tactics and combat of the day to beseful to the wargamer.

This is the last book about Polish history it has a new cast and has the well known narrative power of all Sienkiewicz books but it lacks in creativity maybe the writer is old now and can t afford to build a nice story the story is a classic romance with misunderstandings in the beginning but with a happy ending the background is the siege Of Vienna By The Turks Vienna by the turks the preparations of Poland to help their allies despite their many wars and problems for nearly the past fifty years nexpectantly the book ends before the heroes battle in the siege and enter the field of glory I am not sure if this is intentional or the writer died before finishing his work but leaves the reader with a feeling of dissatisfaction and A Consortium of Worlds unfinished tale There is an epilogue which describes the events of the battle and how Polish cavalry played a key role in the siege and the destruction of the ottoman army the siege of Vienna is a major event in European history it is of the same significance of the fall of Constantinople but in the opposite direction the muslims after many attempts to enter central and west Europe they were finally defeated and the process of decline started which was continued with the many revolutions in the Balkan region during 18th and 19th centuries and the great losses of 20th centuries which ended the ottoman empire with the victory of Vienna europe escaped islam and remained a free region counter to eastern Europe which fellnder muslim occupation for many centuries as the Iberian peninsula although arabs contrary to turks were educated and cultivatedPS the great cavalry march of Polish forces with their king in front reminds me greatly of the march of Rohan I haven t read if Tolkien had this historic event as his inspiration but for sure seem very similar I had such high hopes and expectations for this book as I LOVED Sienkiewicz s UO VADIS and am intrigued about the 1683 battle of Vienna and the forces of Polish king Jan Sobieski III While the love story between the two main characters has its touching moments and there is a portrait created of rural and noble Polish life this novel is a disappointment as the "Narrative And Structure Are "and structure are simplistic and the character development is just not as well done as in UO VADIS This apparently was Sienkiewicz s last published book and I read somewhere that it may have been the beginning of yet another of his historical fiction trilogies but I must admit I am thankful he did not continue it The historical epilogue is very interesting and gives an account of the battle but I will need to look els.
