As in all three novels of the Trilogy, Fire in the Steppe dazzles with a gallery of kings, sultans, generals, magnates, Turkish janissaries, merciless bandits, brave soldiers, and other fictional and historical figures who created the era in which this book is set.

First put into English from a Russian text more than 100 years ago, Fire in the Steppe comes brilliantly back to life in this rich new adaptation for the modern reader directly from Polish, and it illuminates the hopes, history and ethnic memory of the Polish people, along with all those other newly liberated nations who live in Eastern Europe
