It Is Time To Break The Peace

Vlad Tepes (the Impaler) raided Ottoman Muslim camps, who had previously invaded Bulgaria, in the winter of 1462. On 02 Feb, he wrote a letter to Corvinus, the son of the King of Hungary, the country he was defending:

“We killed 23,884 Turks without counting those whom we burned in homes or the Turks whose heads were cut by our soldiers…Thus, your highness, you must know that I have broken the peace.”
