"Both sides, the Teutonic Knights and the Poles, used peasants – Kashubians or peasants from Prussia – in the 13-year war. Although their function in armies was usually different. The Polish side used charcoal burners, lumberjacks or beekeepers for reconnaissance and as guides in the forests and passages between lakes. Peasants were also needed during castle sieges to build their own fortifications. Piotr Dunin, the commander-in-chief of the royal troops, also used peasants to deliberately destroy crops during the blockade, among others. Puck. The mobilized Kashubian peasants were then tasked with cutting down the ripening grain with sickles so that the Teutonic crew of Puck would be deprived of supplies. This is a great example for a historical scenario. The Teutonic Knights sometimes used the armed peasantry to optically increase their own army. This took place, for example, in the main battle of this war near Świecin. The Teutonic Knights had 1,700 foot soldiers in this battle, but 1,300 of them were peasants defending the camp."
