Northern Crusades


anyone know of any good books regarding the Northern Crusades?

If you don't know, the Northern Crusades were when Poland asked for help from the Teutonic Knights in eliminating pagans in Pomerania and Prussia and the Teutonic Knights subsequently decided to start killing off anything slavic in general (typical). Eventually It lead to several large battles involving the Holy Roman Empire, the Teutonic Order, Poland, Russia, a smattering of Mongols, and even some Danes.

Thats really all I know.

so...anyone? I'm also interested to learn more about the Slavic pagans living in the area if anyone knows anything about them.
