CRUSADER CASTLES IN THE HOLY LAND - An Illustrated History of the Crusader Fortifications of the Middle East and Mediterranean
Nicolle, David
ISBN: 9781846033490
Osprey London 2008 First thus.
 Hardcover With many illustrations in colour and black & white, a fine copy in a fine dustjacket. The bloody crusades that swept across the Middle East in medieval times left their mark on the landscape, where fortifications which once acted as bastions of power for the beleaguered Crusader States now cast their ruined shadows over the earth. These fortifications varied considerably in size, architecture and function from the mighty Crac de Chevaliers, the headquarters of the Knights Hospitaller in Syria to smaller fortified dwellings and religious centers. With almost constant warfare between Crusaders and Saracens they were vitally important both as centers of defense and bases for the launch of offensive operations. This book is a beautifully illustrated guide to the development, construction, purpose and history of these fortifications not only in the Middle East (1097 & 1302) but also in Greece, the Aegean and Cyprus (1191 & 1571). Contemporary photographs and the latest research resurrect these imposing reminders of over four centuries of conflict ; 250 x 195mm; 240 pages
