Description
 
Michael Foss. Pope Urban II at the Council of Clermont in 1095 appealed to Western Christendom to march to the aid of their brethren in the East. The prize was the Holy City of Jerusalem. The response to the appeal was immediate & enthusiastic, from mounted warriors to peasants & artisans. The Crusaders -- many of whom had never before left the villages in which they were born -- embarked on this great adventure in reckless ignorance. This book tells the stories of these men & women using their own words. We see how people from different races & religions coexisted in reasonable harmony. It was not religious hatred or racial antipathy which destroyed individual domestic harmony, but the drift of conquest, demographic change & policies of state. Maps & drawings.
