"Tomorrow we hit the city for the last time. Before the bells at Petrov ring noon, Brno must be ours. If not, we will retreat." - thus spoke the Swedish General Torstenson in the spring of 1645, when he had unsuccessfully besieged Brno for 4 long months. And that was after he thought he would sew up a victory within a week. Indeed, in the fortress of Špilberk in Brno there were 400 soldiers and he arrived with 18 thousand! The conquest of Brno meant very much to him - it was the only thing in the path to besieging Vienna.
