interesting facts:
The Battle of Grunwald (Žalgiris in Lithuanian, Tannenberg in German) was one of the largest battles of Medevial Europe. Combined armies of Poland and Lithuania met in a field on July 15th, 1410 with German-speaking army of Teutonic Knights. German forces were completely destroyed and the Grand Master of Teutonic Knights was killed in the battle. This was the beginning of the end for this Order, which in the peak of its power was ruling the Baltic Sea coast from Pommerania up to Estonia.
