"The time of this novel is 1939; the setting, Poland. Mr. Kuniczak covers the first 1000 hours of World War II when the small, ill-equipped Polish army made a magnificent holding action before the final surrender to the attacking Germans. Against the speeding background of the war evolves the story of General Janusz Prus, a gentle man of strong character, and his influence on his government and on the men and women around him."

Fire in the steppe by Henryk Sienkiewicz( Book )

3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 628 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Told by a master storyteller who won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1905, Fire in the Steppe concludes the stories of the Trilogy's fabulous heroines and heroes who live, love and die in these pages of Poland's most enduring epic. As in the first two books, it is a masterful blend of history and imagination in which the East and the West of their era confront each other in an all-out battle, and a handful of devoted men and women makes a heroic stand. Foremost among them is Pan Volodyovski, the Little Knight of The Deluge and With Fire and Sword, and the brave, loving Basia, who rides to war beside him and overcomes terrifying dangers of her own. The inimitable Pan Zagloba, one of literature's most successfully drawn comic anti-heroes, lives, drinks, orates, and flourishes beside them along with a new cast of hard-riding border knights, ruthless villains, and devoted soldiers
