About this item

The Crusadesis an authoritative,accessible single-volume history of the brutal struggle for the Holy Land in the Middle Ages. Thomas Asbridge—a renowned historian who writes with “maximum vividness” (Joan Acocella,The New Yorker)—covers the years 1095 to 1291 in this  big, ambitious, readable account of one of the most fascinating periods in history. From Richard the Lionheart to the mighty Saladin, from the emperors of Byzantium to the Knights Templar, Asbridge’s book is a magnificent epic of Holy War between the Christian and Islamic worlds, full of adventure, intrigue, and sweeping grandeur.

Drawing on both European and Arabic sources, a magisterial, narrative history tells the full story of this brutal struggle for dominion of the Holy Land from both the Christian and Muslim perspective for the first time, revealing the full horror, passion and barbaric grandeur of the Crusades.
