325th anniversary of the Victory at Vienna (Krakow 2008)

'Over 400 knights, including almost 100 on horseback, responded to Krakóws invitation to take part in a battle reconstruction entitled et Deus Vicit in Błonie and in a triumphal parade of the victorious army of Jan III Sobieskiego from Wawel to the Main Market Square. Tens of thousands of local residents and numerous tourists could re-live this event yet again.'

War is a fascinating subject. Despite the dubious morality of using violence to achieve personal or political aims. It remains that conflict has been used to do just that throughout recorded history.

Your article is very well done, a good read.
