Description


The successful Crusade which made Richard the Lionheart a legend


Thomas Archer was a well regarded historian on the subject of the Crusades and was the author of a substantial work which examined them in their entirety. That work covers a long period of time (1095-1244) and embraces many different campaigns, engagements and evolving methods of waging war. For students and readers of military history, Archer's work has now been accessibly divided by Leonaur's editors into shorter historical periods. His writings on the Third Crusade, 1189-1192, are included here. Several European states were involved in the enterprise including France, Hungary, the Holy Roman Empire, Croatia, Genoa, Pisa and the Angevin Empire-the possessions of the House of Plantagenet covering England and portions of Wales, Ireland and France. Prominent among the leadership of the crusading force was King Richard I, known as the Lionheart. Archer's text concentrating on the life of Richard the Lionheart is given here in its entirety. The Third Crusade concluded with a three year truce ratified by the Treaty of Jaffa and though this has been credited as a Crusader victory it was, ultimately merely an episode in warfare which would eventually lead to the expulsion of Christian European military and political influence from the Holy Land. Illustrated.
