Combines material previously published as Campaign 19- Hattin 1187, Warrior 10- Saracen Faris 1050-1250, Warrior 91- Knight Templar 1120-1312, with new images, and a new introduction and conclusion. This book tells the story of the momentous campaign that led to the Muslim capture of Jerusalem in 1187, following the disastrous Crusader defeat at Hattin, where Saladin's troops destroyed the Christian army. These events resulted in the collapse of the kingdom of Jerusalem and sparked off the Third Crusade under Richard I. The authors take a close look at the two most intriguing warrior types involved in the conflict- the Knight Templar and the Saracen Faris. Their motivation, training and combat experiences are examined, as the authors explore what it was really like to fight in the Crusades.

I feel the description and the opinion section on this web page sum up the book quite well. Sadly, despite this book containing three of Osprey Publishing's manuals, I would have preferred if the publisher had included one of their manuals covering the end of the Third Crusade, since this compilation does cover the Horns of Hattin. Other than that, this book is worth reading for those who want a more in depth, scholarly, yet light and easy read on certain aspects of the Third Crusade.
