Here is the slideshow I made as part of the publicity I am producing for the Hussite Tour, which I am organising in September 2011. Have a look at the Czech Tours website, if you are interested.
The Hussites were followers of the teachings of theologian Jan Hus (John Huss) who was burnt at the stake as a heretic. Their one-eyed general Jan Zizka turned his followers from inexperienced peasant farmers into a formidable fighting force. The music is one of their hymns - "Warriors of God".
