The struggle for the Holy Land
When Pope Urban II called European Christianity to capture Jerusalem and stem the expansion of Islamic states into Europe, he set off a train of events that would last many hundreds of years.
Battles of the Crusades introduces 20 key battles from this time of religiously inspired conflict in Europe and the Middle East. Each battle includes a contextual introduction, a concise description of the action, and an analysis of the aftermath. A specially-commissioned, color map brings the subject to life and helps the reader to grasp—at a glance—the development of the battle. With more than 200 color and black-and-white maps, artworks, and photographs, this is an essential companion for anyone interested in battles in the medieval age.
