The Atlas of the Crusades
EPUB EBook by Jonathan Riley-Smith
EBook DescriptionFirst rate and comprehensive reference with useful maps, diagrams and illustrations of such critically important features as the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. The Atlas of the Crusades EPUB EBook The city maps are very valuable, showing what the cities were like then, rather than now. The breakdown of the crusader states into their constituent baronies was absolutely gold worth. There is also much information usually excluded from books about the crusades: ships and shipbuilding, colonial settlements, the patterns of recruitment, the chains of command on the Muslim and Christian side, and more. The book also includes the peripheral crusades (the Albigensian Crusade, the Baltic Crusades, Crusading in the Iberian Peninsula, etc.) as well information about the Byzantine Empire, the Hospitallers on Rhodes and Malta, the rise of the Ottomans and other topics not integral to "crusades" but related. I keep this book readily at hand as I work on my current novel set in the Kingdom of Jerusalem. Like this book? Read online this: The Crusades, What Were the Crusades?.
