The cover art is probably a representation of the clash between Lieuteneant Yan Skshetuski and Burdabut, even though in the story the characters wear different armor.

Indexer Notes

An adaptation of the With Fire and Sword (original title: Ogniem i Mieczem) novel, first published in 1884. Splash page intro: "More than three hundred years ago, Poland was a vast power stretching from the Baltic Sea to the Black Sea. This area included the Ukraine, home of the fierce, daring cavalry -- the Cossacks. The year 1647 in Poland was a year in which there were strange signs in the heavens and on the earth. First there was a great eclipse of the sun, and soon after a comet appeared in the sky. In Warsaw, a tomb was seen over the city and a fiery cross in the clouds. Wolves and vampires howled in the night and whole legions of ghosts marched. These were believed to be signs a great war was coming."
