Book Description

Oct. 15 1996 Warrior (Book 18)
After Saladin's great victory at the Battle of Hattin in 1137, Outremer, as medieval westerners called the remaining Latin or Catholic enclaves in the eastern Mediterranean, was no longer a threat to Islam. Its military elites preferred to live in peace, focusing on trade as much as on the defence of Christendom's holy places. In this, the first book in the English language to objectively study the knights of the Latin East, David Nicolle presents a well-balanced and informed account of the Western warriors who defended the Crusader territories for so long.

First Sentence
The fact that many early Christian saints had been soldiers in the Roman Army appealed to the knightly class which adopted men like St George and St Maurice as their patron saints. Read the first page

Like all Osprey Military books This Book is of the highest Quality. This fine and outstanding book is filled with Tactical to Everyday information on life in the Outremer, including oringinal paintings of Knights,combat, and gear of all sorts. I like how each topic flows into the next,and how the art captures the feel as well as shows a great technical knowlege of the Armour and Weapons of the Period. I also found the area on Horses to be of use and the Break down images of saddles is not covered by many books. A must have.

4.0 out of 5 stars Same Book as another title Oct. 29 2001
I, too, enjoyed this book. However, if you already possess _Crusader Knight_, then save your money. Both books are the exact same. Different titles, different cover art; but, the same text and photos on the exact same numbered page.
Buy one or the other -- great book -- but do not buy both.

5.0 out of 5 stars Guidelines for Crusader ReEnactors Oct. 17 1999
By A Customer
This book is a definite guideline for Crusader ReEnactors everywhere. It offers the smallest details and many insights only foound in Dr Nicolle's larger textbooks. But here is a quick and easy to read book with great illustrations to enable reenactors and crusader nuts to learn more.

4.0 out of 5 stars A "must have" for the re-enactor or history buff Nov. 5 1998
For anyone involved in Medieval re-enactment this book is a must have. The illustrations are well done, clearly showing armour construction and styles over three centuries. I found this book to be an invaluable addition to my collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Overview April 19 2003
Well researched; good details in the "expanded" views; however, I really prefer Rothero or McBride to the overall artistic style of Hook. Otherwise, still a very good resource.
