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

Format: Paperback
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.

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.

Format: Paperback
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.

Format: Paperback
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.

Format: Paperback
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.
