Description from the publisher:
We've heard the tales of Richard the Lionheart, the capture of Jerusalem, the siege of Acre. Here, translated for the first time, are Muslim chronicles that present the Crusades from their point-of-view. Taken from city and dynastic records, the chronicles depictthe harrowing details of sieges, treacheries, massacres, ransomings, valor and self sacrifice. A needed history lesson to help us correct our ``bias'' so we can understand both sides of a critical historical era.
