The Crusades: Christendom Fights Back
Robert C Jones
In modern times, the Crusades are often looked upon with disfavor even by Christians, often being lumped together with the Inquisition (or, in extreme cases, with the Holocaust). But while the Crusaders didn't always live up to the Christian ideal, they were among the first wars fought for an ideal - the protection of the Holy Lands.
This book will examine the Crusades from 1095 when the First Crusade was announced by Pope Urban II in Clermont, France, to 1291 when the last Crusader stronghold in the Holy Lands fell at Acre. Along the way we'll meet some of the famous personages of the Crusades, including Peter the Hermit, Godfrey of Bouillon, Bernard of Clairvaux, Richard the Lionheart, Saladin, Frederick II, and St. Louis.
