This book tells the story of the momentous campaign that led to the Muslim capture of Jerusalem in 1187, following the disastrous Crusader defeat at Hattin, where Saladin's troops destroyed the Christian army. These events resulted in the collapse of the kingdom of Jerusalem and sparked off the Third Crusade under Richard I. The authors take a close look at the two most intriguing warrior types involved in the conflict: the Knight Templar and the Saracen Faris. Their motivation, training and combat experiences are examined, as the authors explore what it was really like to fight in the Crusades.
Nicholson (Cardiff Univ.) is one of today's finest historians of the Crusades; Nicholle is a skilled author of military histories... Chronologies and explanatory boxes will assist beginning readers, and the presentation is sufficiently sophisticated to plese even university specialists. Summing up: Highly recommended.
