Features Age of the Crusades
- 48 Pages
- 20 Color Plates
- 2 Black & White Plates

The eastern Roman Empire based around Constantinople was known as the Byzantine Empire. It remained a potent force throughout the Middle Ages until the 15th century. Its greatest challenge came from the advent of Islam in the 7th century. The Byzantine Empire stood as a bulwark against Muslim expansion throughout the period when Western warriors fought against Islamic warriors in a series of Crusader campaigns aimed to capture various holy sites.

Outside the conflicts between Christianity and Islam, Vikings, Mongols, Turkic warriors and other barbarian raiders descended upon Christian settlements and rampaged them. Eventually the Age of the Crusades ended when the Ottoman Turks defeated the Byzantine Empire.

In this title Angus McBride gives us 20 brand new illustrations of Western warriors fighting against Muslims and barbarians. The Battle of Stamford Bridge, Battle of Hastings, Battle of Manzikert, Storming of Jerusalem, Knights Templar, Battle of Liegnitz, and the Siege of Constantinople are just some of the subjects covered by McBride's artwork.
