The Crusades.

By Michael Hodges, 1936-

Hodges contrasts Islamic and Christian sources in this account of bravery, trickery and treachery in the sands of the Holy Land. Stretching from the First Crusade in 1097 to the fall of Constantinople in 1453, this narrative explains how "fighting monks", Byzantine emperors, Saracen warriors and Italian traders forged the state of Outremer at the crossroads of the medieval world. This book is particularly aimed at young readers and focuses on the topics and skills required by the National Curriculum. Each chapter introduces and develops a theme and provides a variety of further activities including "Can You Remember", "Check Your Understanding" and "Things To Do" sections.
