Osprey Special Editions (Military) : God's Warriors : Crusaders, Saracens and the Battle for Jerusalem

Following the disastrous Crusader defeat at Hattin, where Saladin's troops destroyed the Christian army, the campaign that followed led to the Muslim capture of Jerusalem in 1187. 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. Text by Helen Nicholson and David Nicolle.
