The Battle of Grunwald, First Battle of Tannenberg or Battle of Žalgiris, was fought on 15 July 1410 during the Polish–Lithuanian–Teutonic War.
The battle was one of the largest in medieval Europe and is regarded as one of the most important victories in the histories of Poland and Lithuania and is also widely celebrated in Belarus. It has been used as a source of romantic legends and national pride, becoming a larger symbol of struggle against foreign invaders.
La bataille de Grunwald est aux Polonais ce que fut un temps Marignan aux Français : celle dont on se devait de savoir la date. Comment cet affrontement en est-il venu à occuper une place incontournable dans la mémoire polonaise ?
