Dubbed the “Polish Gone with the Wind” by the New York Times, With Fire and Sword is a historical novel set within the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth during the Khmelnytsky or Ukrainian Uprising of the seventeenth century.

The second of Henryk Sienkiewicz’s historical novels on Poland, The Deluge is the sweeping epic of the heroic soldier Andrzej Kmicic who lived during a series of mid-seventeenth-century Polish military campaigns known as the “Northern Wars,” or “the Deluge.” In these campaigns, Poland sought to turn back a Swedish invasion of its territory while still resisting Russia in a larger campaign. Sienkiewicz skilfully ushers readers into seventeenth-century Poland, masterfully weaving together history and fiction into a story filled with action and adventure. Originally published in two volumes, the Logos edition of The Deluge contains both volumes in a single resource.

About Henryk Sienkiewicz

Henryk Sienkiewicz (1846–1916) was Polish historian, journalist, and the winner of the 1905 Nobel Prize for lifetime achievement in literature. He is one of the best known historical figures in Poland. He has three museums dedicated to him in Poland, and there are statues dedicated to him in the Ukraine and in Rome. He was awarded honorary doctorates from both Jagiellonian University and Lwów University.

About Jeremiah Curtin

Jeremiah Curtin (1835–1906) was an American translator and folklorist. He graduated from Harvard in 1863 and worked for the U.S. State Department in Russia and Britain. Curtin mastered more than 70 languages, and reportedly knew little Polish when he began translating Henryk Sienkiewicz’s With Fire and Sword—something for which he has received considerable criticism. Yet, his translations of Sienkiewicz’s novels are credited with making the publishing house Little, Brown, and Company financially solvent.
