Saladin, Paperback / softback Book

Saladin Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Peter Dennis

Part of the Command series

Description

This Osprey Command book looks closely at the early life, military experiences and key battlefield exploits of Al-Malik al-Nasir Yusuf Ibn Najm al-Din Ayyub Ibn Shahdi Abu'l-Muzaffar Salah al-Din - or Saladin as he is more commonly known outside the Islamic world - who is broadly regarded as the greatest hero of the Crusades, even in Europe.

Most chroniclers present him as a man of outstanding virtue, courage and political skill.

More recently, however, efforts have been made to portray Saladin as an ambitious, ruthless and even devious politician, and as a less brilliant commander than is normally thought.

This book sets out to reveal that the truth is, as usual, somewhere in between.
