"Venimus, vidimus et Deus vicit" - September 12, 1683 - The Battle of Vienna

The famous words of Sobieski reflected his belief that God is active in history, in the world. So it was on that fateful September 12th morning in 1683. The Hussar charge broke the Turkish forces, who had been besieging Vienna for the past two months, liberating the city and defeating the Turkish Empire's deepest penetration into Europe. Had Sobieski lost the road would have been open to Rome...
