Author(s): Christopher Tyerman
The story of how warriors, driven by faith, greed and wanderlust, carved out new Christian-ruled states in the Middle East is one of the most extraordinary of all epics. The crusaders' stunning initial success started a sequence of great Crusades, each with its own story. This book presents an account of a fascinating but horrifying story.
Christopher Tyerman is a Fellow in History at Hertfod College, Oxford, and a Lecturer in Medieval History at New College, Oxford. He is the author of England and the Crusades and Fighting for Christendom: Holy War and the Crusades.
