Description
 
The album is a collection of battle illustrations by a well known and appreciated artist – Mariusz Kozik.
His works decorate numerous book covers, for instance, Osprey Publishing historical books and WarBook military series.

The album contains illustrations of battle scenes from ancient to modern times. Images which praise the glory of the Polish arms deserve special attention.  The majority of paintings are NOT from Polish history.

The artist portrays knights and soldiers in the times of significant historical events. Extraordinary scenes retell the past anew thus evoking plenty of emotions and awakening patriotism. They imbue readers with pride in achievements of the past generations and grant a sense of being unique in the united Europe. In the eyes of recipients from abroad Kozik’s compositions preserve the picture of Poland being a country of fearsome warriors and mysterious and proud winged hussars.
