The Great battle of Žalgiris

The Battle of Žalgiris (Grunwald or Battle of Tannenberg) took place on July 15, 1410 with the Grand Duchy of Lithuania and the Kingdom of Poland and  ranged against the Knights of the Teutonic Order. It was the decisive engagement in the Polish-Lithuanian-Teutonic War (1409-1411) and one of the greatest battles of medieval Europe.The battle saw the Monastic State of the Teutonic Knights decisively defeated — and the order never recovered its former power.

The few eyewitness accounts are contradictory. It took place near several smaller villages, and different names in various languages are attributed to it.  Read more on Wikipedia
