4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent volume!, 6 Jun. 2007
This review is from: Saladin: Hero of Islam (Hardcover)
Saladin was without a doubt a most extraordinary man and a key character in the Muslim world in the late 1100's. So famous was he for his actions then, that now, several hundred years later, his achievement are legendary and he is still revered by thousands the world over!

This excellent and very readable volume written by a specialist in this period of world history cleverly provides the reader with a fascinating insight into the life and times of this most remarkable man and describes how, as a brilliant soldier and battlefield commander, he rose to power in an area that included Egytpt, Palestine and Syria.

The name Saladin often brings shivers down ones spine, however as this book proves, he was a chivalrous leader who also enjoyed a unequalled political skills and an enviable reputation for mercy after his conquests.

This well written volume includes some excellent black and white photographs and copies of period drawing, maps and paintings. There is a valuable notes section, a glossary of Arabic terms and a detailed bibliography, making it a valuable addition to any ancient history enthusiasts library.
