From the beginning of time, humankind has been fascinated with areas of the world and historical periods beyond our immediate experience. The Historical Atlas series offers a highly visual and compelling presentation of the history and development of different lands and empires throughout the world and across time. Each volume pairs lively "you are there" accounts with a superb combination of detailed maps, stunning photographs and illustrations, profiles of key figures, timelines, and much more to provide new and unique insights into the world's history.

Containing evidence from the latest discoveries and research, this book is the most up-to-date study of the Crusades available, examining the causes, development, and people who fought for their faith and themselves. Highly readable historical accounts are accompanied by dozens of specially commissioned maps and more than 160 superb illustrations -- many of which have never been previously published -- to provide a rich tapestry of this medieval era.
