The history, myth and romance of the medieval knight on crusade, with over 500 stunning images of the battles, adventures, sieges, fortresses, triumphs and defeats
The medieval knights of western Europe were central to the Crusades, and this book tells their story. It examines the chivalric brotherhood of crusading knights, typified in the orders of the Knights Templar and Knights Hospitallers. It also details the battles fought, lost and won by the Crusaders, the castles they built, the states they founded, the marriages, alliances and dynasties they began, and their diversions, corruptions and failures. The glamorous, larger-than-life figures of the most famous crusader knights are given special attention. The crusades were a fascinating period of history, full of epic stories, heroic acts, and both the best and the worst of human behaviour. This book, lavishly illustrated with over 500 colour images, celebrates the knights of those crusades, and offers a vivid insight into their lives.
