Masterful storytelling, in a good old fashioned adventure. Many characters of deep faith within this story. A tale filled with morals, heroism, patriotism, love, loss, duty, honor, warmth, and humor. There is such great character development contained within this book, that there is easily great potential for a prequel book, and a sequel book, that could develop the further adventures of all of the main characters in this story. I hope that the writer will write them, as I'd really like to see m ...more

Patriotism and Christianity at its finest. This book provides the reader with a perspective on faith, reason, love, honor, good and evil that has sadly gone out of style. The book reminds me of the trilogy by sienkiewicz . Would like to read more by this author.

From Professor David Moran:
It is amazing and wonderful to at last encounter a book where the hero is human, believable, so real that we know instinctively that even we could be that hero. (“The Tatra Eagle” J. Victor Tomaszek)

J Victor Tomaszek does a masterful job of painting the scene of Poland in the 1680s and especially their critical role in the battle of Vienna, seat of the Holy Roman Empire. The story is a coming of age of young Boleslaw as the devastation of war is experienced. Priest, one of the four knights that effect Bole's maturation, is a character I would like to read about as a main character, perhaps in a prequel or sequel.

I loved reading this book. It gave an excellent view of life in rural southern Poland in the late 17th century. Descriptions of different classes and how they interacted. The focus was on the Polish military and their famous battle at Vienna against the Muslim Turks. Wove in stories of preceding Polish military history, theology and philosophy. Excellent.
