    I really enjoyed reading Zizka. It reads smoothly throughout. The fast paced action captures the brutality and inhumanity of the fifteenth century Hussite wars as well as the innovative military strategies introduced by Jan Zizka. Dr. Fuxa’s descriptions of the weapons and modes of transportation used at the time could qualify him as the Tom Clancy of the fifteenth century. In addition it’s a good story.

    Jim Fuxa presents a eye-opening account of a hero from the middle ages. Zizka the One-Eyed is a well-paced story with richly described characters. The details of the battles, politics, and economics of the time in Bohemia encourage the reader to learn more about the history of this region of Europe.I highly recommend the book.

    This is quite a great read. I didn't have any real knowledge of Bohemia or the Hussite revolution, as most of my history knowledge has been more centered in western Europe. Zizka, the One-Eyed, gives a wonderful, detailed look into that era, with a good historical perspective (I've looked it up since) and good characterization of the protagonist. It is quite an adventurous yarn and shows a lot about the military tactics used by the Hussites to become the dominant military force within that area, surpassing formerly highly effective cavalry forces from Austria and Poland. Hussites were effectively a well-trained peasant military force with highly unorthodox tactics for the era. Zizka is a powerful figure, undaunted by much adversity in his life, and the love affair interposed within the story is simple and beautiful. Mr. Fuxa depicts his characters with understanding and sympathy. This is a wonderful adventure set in an interesting place and time. It is a great read! I look forward to...
