Monday, July 7, 2008

By Geoffroi De Villehardouin and Jean De Joinville (author), Sir Frank Marzials (Translator)

Call Number: D164 .A3 M46 2007

The most authoritative, firsthand accounts available of the Holy Wars, this work collects both Villehardouin’s Conquest of Constantinople and Joinville’s Life of Saint Louis. Veterans of the Fourth and Seventh Crusades, the former soldiers provide an engrossing narrative that recounts the terrifying battles, unspeakable atrocities, and the religious and political fervor that sparked the two-hundred year campaign.
