Synopsis

The extraordinary character and career of Saladin are the keys to understanding the Battle of Hattin, the fall of Jerusalem and the failure of the Third Crusade. He united warring Muslim lands, reconquered the bulk of Crusader states and faced the Richard the Lion Heart, king of England, in one of the most famous confrontations in medieval warfare. Geoffrey Hindley's sympathetic and highly readable study of the life and times of this remarkable, many-sided man, who dominated the Middle East in his day, gives a fascinating insight into his achievements and into the Muslim world of his contemporaries.

Saladin: Hero of Islam
Average rating
4 / 5
A great leader
September 20th, 2014
A well-written and balanced biography, in its historical context, of one of the great leaders of history. The world lacks such great individuals who do what needs to be done to obtain the desired outcome, all the while keeping their sense of humanity.
