After Saladin's great victory at the Battle of Hattin in 1137, Outremer, as medieval westerners called the remaining Latin or Catholic enclaves in the eastern Mediterranean, was no longer a threat to Islam. Its military elites preferred to live in peace, focusing on trade as much as on the defence of Christendom's holy places. In this, the first book in the English language to objectively study the knights of the Latin East, David Nicolle presents a well-balanced and informed account of the Western warriors who defended the Crusader territories for so long.
Contents: Introduction · Chronology · Outremer · The Knight in Outremer · Education and Training · Society and Culture · On Campaign · Arms and Armour · Display and Heraldry · Collections · Bibliography · Glossary * Colour plates by Christa Hook.
