The Crusades


Category: History

Hillaire Belloc


Copyright/published Year: 1992 by Tan Books


ISBN: 0895554674


Binding: PAPER

Belloc shows that the Crusades were a titanic struggle between Christian civlization (threatened both in the Holy Land and in Europe itself) and "the Turk," savage Mongols who had embraced Islam. He explains the practical reasons why the Crusaders initially succeeded and why they ultimately failed_then he predicts the re-emergence of Islam, since Christendom failed to destroy it in the 12th century. Makes history come alive and gives a rare, true appreciation of Christendom and of our Catholic forefathers!
