BOOK OVERVIEW:

Beginning with the Dorylaeum (1097) and finishing with Varna (1444), Battles of the Crusades introduces 20 key fights from 500 years of conflict between Christianity and Islam.

Highly illustrated, and filled with art and maps, Battles of the Crusades covers examples from every era and campaign in this religious war--not only the well-known encounters in Antioch, Jerusalem, and Harran, but also the clash at Montgisard and Saladin's destruction of the Crusader army at Hattin. Going beyond the Middle East, it includes the Christian recapture of Lisbon, the massacre of the Albigensians at Beziers in France, and the Reconquista of Spain, and the expansion of the Teutonic Knights. Each entry includes an introduction, a concise description of the action, and an analysis of the aftermath. Color maps illustrate the movement of forces and the development of the fighting. Designed for both general readers and enthusiasts, this book is essential for anyone interested in the warfare and tactics of the Middle Ages.
