Regulo Jr. I just wanted to Share some great history books about the Crusades.

Please feel free to add any other books on the Crusades.

Regulo Jr. I an interested and looking for a book on the crusades that gives more details of the different battles fought and of their tactical battle formations, techniques, methods, weapons, equipment used!

Try any of the "Men At Arms" books by Osprey.
Concise and well illustrated.
There are a fair few of these, EG:
Hattin 1187: Saladin's greatest victory
Armies of the Crusades
The Knights of Christ
Saladin and the Saracens

Aye, already added a bunch...just replying to Regulo in message 2...didn't want to add every book to the list.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Just making sure!

Old-Barbarossa God's War: A New History of the Crusades is one I certainly won't add to the list. Dull.
But I am a Steven Runciman fan, he makes it all so much more readable.


message 8: by Simon (new)

Simon Acland I apologise for beinng pushy, but I thought that if you are interested in the history of the Crusades you might enjoy my novel, The Waste Land, which is set during the First Crusade. http://www.simonacland.com/wasteland.htm


message 9: by Jeff (new)

Jeff Gassler Steven Runciman may be more readable, but his work is based on old perceptions of the Crusades and lacks the latest in professional scholarship. If you want a readable book on The Crusades, check out Thomas Asbridge's "The Crusades: An Authoritative History." Asbridge makes you connect with the people and he is one of few western writers who covers the Crusades from both Christian and Muslim perspectives.
