The Blind Courage of Jan Zizka

To follow the DVD on Jan Hus I had bought a documentary on one of his followers: Jan Zizka. This was absolutely amazing — a fantastic story and history that I would highly recommend. The general who never lost a battle, the general who never faced a fair fight (best odds he faced was being outnumbered 2:1, he won being outnumbered 10:1 a few times), the general who’s army was mostly peasants but fought knights, the general who was blind in one eye, and then half-way through his career he was made totally blind by an arrow — and he carried on leading the troops and winning battles! What this man achieved is astounding, his integrity is astounding. A giant of a man.
