Knights of the Cross is an historically accurate strategic game based upon a novel by Polish author, Henryk Sienkiewicz and takes place in the 15th Century in a period straddling one of the most important battles of medieval Europe for both Polish and German nations: the siege of Marienburg (Malbork) during the Tannenberg (Grunwald) battle of 1410. Knights of the Cross is the name given to the warriors of the Teutonic Order invading lands controlled by Polish forces, so called because of their look: white tunics and coats enriched with black crosses. The powerful army of the Polish Kingdom stands against this Knights of the Cross invasion. As a Knight in control of your own army, you undertake missions given to you by either the King of the Polish Kingdom or the Grand Master of the Teutonic Order. With each side having its own unique set of armaments and units, Knights of the Cross will be a challenge for all strategists. Choosing their favourite side and making use of tactics and strategic skills, players can alter the course of history!
