Historical Background[]

The Hussites were christian followers of the reformer Jan Hus, who was executed in 1418 charged with Heresy. They were split up in two parties: the moderate Utraquists - mainly merchants and members of the minor nobility - and the probably more heretic Taborites, followers of the Hussite general Jan Zizka.

A tactic the Hussites were famous for was the "Wagenburg"(Wagon Fort) developed by Zizka. It was a stationary fort formed by a square or circle of War Wagons defended by handgunners, crossbowmen and pikemen.
