The Crusades

Born amid immense suffering and bloodshed, the Kingdom of Jerusalem remained a battlefield for almost 200 years. The Crusades gave rise to the Military Orders of the Templars and Hospitallers, and were a backdrop to the careers of some of history's most famous leaders including Richard 'The Lionheart' and Saladin. On occasion the savagery of the Crusaders left their opponents reeling, creating frictions that survived for more than 700 years. At the same time, as this book lavishly illustrates, art, architecture and learning all benefited from new knowledge the Crusaders brought back from the East.

Each book studies the origins, politics, fighting and repercussions of one major war or theatre of war, from both military and civilian perspectives. Featuring full colour maps, diagrams and photography throughout, each book in Ospreys Essential Histories series also includes pictures of contemporary artwork and artefacts, providing a full visual appreciation of how it was to live through each war. Essential Histories are an important reference resource for students, teachers, academics, history enthusiasts and hobbyists.
