World Landmark Book #11. In 1095, the world was very different from our world today. For those were the days when knights rode forth to battle in heavy armor, and miitary might determined all things. In that year Peter the Hermit led thousands of men, women, and children in a march to Jerusalem to rescue the Holy Lands from the Moslems. Each of his followers wore a cross as a sign of membership in what was called the First Crusade. In the next 200 years, millions of Europeans headed toward Jerusalem on a series of crusades. Some of the Crusaders kept journals from which we can piece together the full story of there adventures. In the Crusades, Anthony West recounts the extraordinary events of those expeditions. A classic in a wonderful series!
