past weekend another huge celebration-reenactment was held at the Grunwald Battle Museum in the 'gmina' Grunwald, Poland, commemorating the famous battle of the Middle Ages, regarded as one of the largest battles of the period.
Prof. Piotr Nowakowski's book, with Andrej Klein's fantastic artwork, on the banners of the Teutonic Order is available at his page on academia website.
In Poland, UKraine, Bielorus etc this battle still draws artists to create more works reconstructing the battle, one of such artists is a Polish painter Stanislaw E. Bodes - here a little snippet into his Grunwald works.
