[edit] Information

Mankind has been fighting against his own since the beginning of time. Countless soldiers and civilians have died as anonymous pieces on the playing-board of history. The three battles depicted in this collection were either glorious victories or disastrous defeats for these cities but were written about in history books in terms of countries and commanders. Finally these stories are told here from the viewpoint of the ordinary people. Large-scale re-enactments, state-of-the-art computer animations and interviews with historians, archaeologists and medical experts bring the reality of these battles to life.

[edit] The Siege of Vienna 1529

A huge Turkish army, under the command of Suleiman the Splendid, threatened Vienna, the "golden apple" of Christianity. Left on its own, Vienna only barely held out the siege.

[edit] The Sack of Magdeburg 1631

Not much remained of the city after the imperial-Catholic soldiers had finished with her. This event burned itself into the memory of Europe as a symbol of the terror of war.

[edit] The Battle of Sedan 1870

German troops crossed the River Meuse in an attempt to surprise Napoleon III. But even though they were warned, the French troops could not save Bazeilles from a massacre, nor Sedan from being ruined.
