Lost Worlds: Days That Changed The World: The Siege Of Vienna
Days That Changed The World: The Siege Of Vienna
Season 1  |  Episode 2  |  SBS2  |  March 1, 2011

Part two looks at September 12, 1683 when the Austrian defenders had little hope in the face of superior numbers of Ottoman troops besieging Vienna and reinforcements, in the shape of Polish troops, were far away. However, Polish knights managed to break through the Turkish lines and liberate the city. If Vienna had fallen to the seemingly unstoppable Ottoman Empire, would the predominantly Christian Europe we know today be heavily influenced by Islam?
