Sobieski at Vienna, 1683
a video by Rogvist
Vienna was a strong fortress, but by the end of August 1683, the city was in mortal danger of collapsing to the Turkish attack. The Ottoman siege cut virtually every means of food supply, and the garrison and civilian volunteers suffered extreme casualties.
After the Battle Jan Sobieski entered Vienna in glory. The King and his Polish army had won lots of fame after their victory. Jan Sobieski III was not only looked upon as the savior of Vienna, but as a savior of the whole Europe.
