The Crusades by Zoé Oldenbourg( Book )

94 editions published between 1965 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 3,065 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It was a great adventure, motivated by more than simply religion or pure aggression: the Crusades resulted from an emotional climate that led people from all walks of life to leave their homes and follow the unattainable ideal of a heavenly Jerusalem here on Earth. A prize-winning author paints a portrait of the whole of feudal society, evoking its exceptional vitality and the ingenuity of the Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem--one of the more sophisticated achievements of the Middle Ages--and personalities such as Tancred, Peter the Hermit, Richard the Lionhearted, and Saladin
Catherine the Great by Zoé Oldenbourg( Book )

72 editions published between 1965 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 2,334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This picture of the Russian ruler as a woman shows that Catherine was engulfed in such intrigue and conflict that she had to rule or to perish.

In 1208 Pope Innocent III called for a Crusade--this time against a country of fellow Christians. The new enemy: Raymond VI, Count of Toulouse, one of the greatest princes in Christendom, premier baron of all the territories in southern France where the langue d'oc was spoken. Thus began the Albigensian Crusade, named after the town of Albi. It culminated in 1244 at the mountain fortress of Montsegur with the massacre of the Cathars, or "pure ones"--A faith more ancient than Catholicism. At stake was not only the growth of this rival religion right in the heart of the Catholic Church's territory, but also the very survival of the Languedoc itself as an autonomous and independent region of France
