History Of The Crusades

Add to Calendar Europe/Paris History Of The Crusades

A triumph of prose-writing, argument and research, Steven Runciman’s ‘A History of the Crusades’ is an unimprovable account of events which changed the world and which still resonate today. In this final volume he starts with the glamorous Third Crusade and then tells the later story as the crusader states collapsed – a less well-known but fascinating period where crusaders found themselves fighting everywhere from Egyptian swamps to the Great Hungarian Plain and the apparent clarity of the original urge to liberate Jerusalem seemed a distant dream.
