Comments, questions, feedback:

Brief historical note: apart from being a general (with many great battles beforehand) at the moment of the Vienna battle Sobieski was the Polish king. Polish army played key role in that war, with great effort. And went back home generally unrewarded, what was far from being a precendence. It is somewhat of Polish tradition to win some wars and then get screwed due to idiotic and corrupted politicians. --lRem

Yes, I know about him being king of Poland. My favorite miliary heros are Eastern European. -- Pfvicm


Updated to version 7.2.3b. Fancier radar installed. -- Pfvicm
