(p.222) 20 The Thirteen Years War
The Oxford History of Poland-Lithuania

Robert Frost

Oxford University Press

Chapter 20 charts the Thirteen Years War between Poland and the Prussian Bund (Union) on one side, and the Teutonic Order on the other. It explains why the Poles and the Bund were unable to consolidate their early advantage after the Battle of Konitz, and how the changed ways in which war was waged made it difficult for them to win a quick victory. It examines the consolidation of the Order’s power in the eastern part of Prussia, and the establishment of Königsberg as its power-base. It explains why the Poles and the Bund gradually won the upper hand, and considers the partition of Prussia into Royal Prussia and an Ordensstaat in which the Teutonic Order preserved its rule as a vassal of the Polish crown.
