God's warriors : crusaders, Saracens and the battle for Jerusalem by Helen J Nicholson( Book )

12 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 617 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book combines material previously published as Campaign 19: Hattin 1187, Warrior 10: Saracen Faris 1050-1250, Warrior 91: Knight Templar 1120-1312, with new images, and a new introduction and conclusion. This book tells the story of the momentous campaign that led to the Muslim capture of Jerusalem in 1187, following the disastrous Crusader defeat at Hattin, where Saladins troops destroyed the Christian army. 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

Hattin 1187 : Saladin's greatest victory by David Nicolle( Book )

14 editions published between 1993 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The battle of Hattin in 1187 was the most decisive campaign in the history of the Crusades. In a two-day running battle on the waterless plateau between Saffuriya and Tiberias, beneath a burning sun, Saladin's troops destroyed the Christian army. His victory marked the beginning of the end for the Crusader states. The Crusaders' disastrous defeat resulted in the collapse of the kingdom of Jerusalem and sparked off the Third Crusade under Richard I "Coeur de Lion." This book tells the story of the momentous months in the late 12th century leading to the Muslim capture of Jerusalem."--Jacket
Fighting for the faith : the many fronts of medieval crusade and Jihad, 1000-1500 AD by David Nicolle( Book )

8 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fighting between Christians and Muslims in the medieval period is often seen in the narrow context of the battle for the Holy Land. Other points of conflict tend to be ignored. But, as David Nicolle's thought provoking survey shows, religions clashed across the medieval world - in the Mediterranean and the Therian peninsula, in the Near East, in Central Asia, India, the Balkans, Anatolia, Russia, the Baltic and Africa. Over 500 years, the struggle in reach theatre of conflict had its own character - methods of warfare differed and developed in different ways and were influenced by local traditions and circumstances. And these campaigns were not waged solely against Christian or Islamic enemies, but against pagan, non-Christian or non-Islamic peoples. As he tells the story of Crusade and Jihad, and describes the organization and tactics of the armies involved, David Nicolle opens up a new understanding of the phenomenon of holy war."--Jacket
