"Scattered across the Middle East and Mediterranean are the ruins of castles, walls and towers, fragments of history that reflect the terrible struggles of the Crusades. From the beginning of the First Crusade in 1096 to the final fall of Cyprus in 1570 the Crusader States existed in a hostile environment both as aggressors and defenders, to which their fortifications stand testament. From imposing castles to lonely towers on rocky outcrops and crumbling city walls, these fortifications are a lasting memorial to a tumultuous time and David Nicolle has created a comprehensive and vivid guide to their history, context and use."--Jacket

"This title details the epic four-month siege of the city of Constantinople, last vestige of the once mighty Roman and Byzantine Empires. Mehmet "the Conqueror" led an army of 80,000 men with a massive siege train against the city. Defending the city were a mere 10,000 men under the Emperor Constantine XI. The Turkish artillery battered the ancient city walls mercilessly, leveling a large section. A gallant defense held off the massive Turkish assault for several hours. Refusing appeals to flee, Constantine returned to the breaches and fought until overwhelmed and killed. The death of this last Emperor of the Byzantines brought an end to a once glorious empire."--BOOK JACKET
