Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The debacle of the Second Crusade in 1148 caused the Crusader States to realise the necessity of developing a more cautious strategy. The original expansionist spirit largely disappeared, and the Crusader States made priorities of strengthening their existing fortifications and towns and building new castles. These structures encompassed core aspects of Western European military architecture with the integration of rapidly developing Arab and Islamic traditions. Following Fortress 21: 'Crusader Castles in the Holy Land 1097-1192', this book examines the design, development and defensive principles of some of the best-known Crusader fortifications and castles, including Crac des Chevaliers, Castel Blanc, Arsuf, Margat, Atlit, Montfort and Acre.

Synopsis:

Crusader castles represent almost every aspect of Western European military architecture during the golden age of castle building. The first of a three-volume set, this book focuses on 12th century crusader fortifications in the regions now known as Israel, Palestine, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria and south-eastern Turkey.
