The third book has some of my favorite scenes and kicks off the work to get to the battle with the mongols. My one complaint is the third book starts off a little slow, but makes up for it in the last third of the book. Still, that slow start cost it a start.

Awesome parts:
-The love story that starts out with Boris Novachek losing his hands. I guess I am a romantic at heart.
-Hell...the warrior school is started.
-Piotr's fight with Baron Stefan. I love the fight and what comes after.
-Piotr's love...more
This is the third in the Conrad Stargard series, about a Polish engineer who travels back in time to medieval Poland. Like the Connecticut Yankee at King Arthur's court in Twain's story, Conrad finds himself in a situation where he can use his knowledge and skills to jump-start a medieval society into modern times. He introduces the steam engine and a cloth factory and-with the help of a Muslim alchemist--gunpowder and guns.
It seems to me he gets too much support from local lords and churchmen...more
Great series on to the next
I love books that take a character and move him out of his time and place such as A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court, or The Chronicles of Narnia. This is one of my favorites. I love the world building. I could do without all the sex with nubile young women, but I'm not offended by it.
Time for Conrad to get a modern army and weapons put together. The mongols will be overrunning Poland very soon.
Third book in the Baen omnibus ebook edition Conrad Stargard: The Radiant Warrior.
Stranded in 13th century Poland, Conrad uses his 20th century engineering know-how to prepare the Poles for the Mongol invasion. Humor and danger are frequent as Conrad does his best to adapt to the times and make the culture a little more egalitarian.
I actually find the stripclubs less believable than the genetically engineered horse that has the intelligence of a human and reproduces asexually on-demand. Even so, this was as enjoyable as the first 2 books. My favorite part was how he started building the army by putting medieval riff-raff through boot camp.
This one had a bit less plot than the previous books -- the dude spent three hundred pages talking about all his awesome engineering projects and then the book ended. There was a side plot with his accountant which was sort of alarmingly misogynistic.
My favorite time travel books/series ever.
