The Crusader States and their Neighbours

A Military History, 1099-1187

Nicholas Morton

  • Offers a region-wide military history of the Near East at the time of the early Crusades (1099-1187)
  • Breaks away from the simplistic notion that the crusades were simply 'Christians vs Muslims'
  • Draws attention to the crucial roles played by hitherto unregarded Near Eastern people groups such as the Kurds, Turkmen, and Bedouin
  • Questions longstanding orthodoxies/questions concerning the crusades
