Crusader Castles by Robin Fedden and John Thomson

$ 5.00

The network of castles linking the valleys, passes and mountain ranges of the near East is quite unique as an architectural phenomenon and it sprang from a variety of causes connected with the Crusades. Both authors have travelled all over the area in which the castles are found, and many of the photographs and plans in this book are the result of their visits to the sites themselves. In this book they discuss the factors leading to the construction of the castles and their political and military background.
