The bloody Crusade launched against the Cathar heretics of southern France at the beginning of the thirteenth century is sadly famous for its brutality and savagery, even according to the norms of the Middle Ages.It was marked by massacres and appalling acts of cruelty, acts commonly attributed to the role of religious fanaticism.Here, in the first military history of the entire conflict, Sean McGlynn tells the story of the crusade through his epic sieges of seemingly impregnable fortresses, desperate battles and destructive campaigns and expert analysis of the war heroic involuntary limit, revealing the crusade in a different light – as a bloody territorial conquest in which terrorist acts were perpetrated to set military rather than religious goals.The dramatic events of the crusade and its colourful characters – Simon de Montfort, Louis le Lion, Innocent III, Peter d’ Aragon, Count Raymond de Toulouse – are brought to life by the voices of contemporary authors who fought and experienced the crusade.”A captivating and dramatic storytellingMcGlynn is able to captivate the readerHighly recommended “- Medieval Warfare Magazine
