`this volume is a valuable overview of the subject ... this book is not aimed primarily at the historian of war. However, it contains much of value for anyone interested in the organisation and practice of warfare in the medieval period.' Matthew Bennett, War in History, 2000 7 (3). `makes the results of the recent academic study of the Crusades accessible to a wide section of the general public and succeeds in conveying that this is a living and developing subject, which has far from exhausted its potential.'
