Présentation de l'éditeur

The First Crusade was an astonishing feat of endurance and faith - a punishing trek that saw tens of thousands of Europeans marching east to liberate Jerusalem.

Nearly nine hundred years later, in 1987, the same journey was attempted by just one man, one woman and - most importantly - two horses that set out from Chateau Bouillon in Belgium to retrace that epic quest.

Tim Severin’s aim was to bring Eleventh Century history vividly to life by following in the footsteps of Duke Godfrey de Bouillon and the earliest Crusader knights.

Starting out with the same special breed of Ardennes Heavy Horse used by Duke Godfrey's train, Severin followed the historic trail for eight and a half months.

Riding out of the green countryside of northern Europe into the increasing heat and parched landscape of the Near East, he and his companion covered more than 2,500 miles, past ruined Crusader settlements and ancient battlefields, through arduous mountain passes and across the barren Anatolian steppelands. Travelling through Germany, Austria, Hungary, Yugoslavia, Bulgaria, Turkey and Syria, Severin followed the precise route of those medieval voyagers as best he could.

At their journey's end was the jewel in the Crusader's crown itself - the holy city of Jerusalem.

Crusader is a dazzling synthesis of adventure, practical history and exploration, as Tim Severin assesses how far Duke Godfrey reasonably could have expected his heavy cavalry to travel each day, the problems they would have encountered in feeding and caring for their big chargers on the open road, and which of the alternative routes would have been the most likely path.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I really enjoyed this book 4 mars 2015

I really enjoyed this book. The author draws you into his adventure, and makes you feel as if you were there on the trail with him. It was a fascinating trip, and I learned a lot about the crusaders that I hadn't known before. Loved his horse Carty, too!
Before I read this book, I hadn't been interested in that era of history at all, but Tim Severin made it come alive for me. But it isn't just about history - it's about the people he meets, the places he sees, and so much more. An excellent read!
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Highly recommended to all - especially horse or history lovers 29 novembre 2014

This is a fascinating story on so many levels. I completely fell in love with his horses as each one exhibits a personality quite unique. His tale is full of so many humorous antidotes and adventures, and the writing style is very personable and easy to read. I find this book hard to put down. In addition, he's done his homework and includes a great deal of history making such history fascinating and could inspire one to learn more. An excellent author - I seem to enjoy everything he writes.

A very interesting read. I was down for a few weeks with a surgery and had a chance to read this.

First off, this is well written and very interesting. Everyday details are very complete and it feels like you are riding along with the characters. But this does not move along very quickly, and some of the historical pieces of information are over whelming. This does make for pretty good reading anyway.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 I loved Carty too 31 décembre 2014

I loved Carty too, and I couldn't stop reading after Tim Severin tells us of his first encounter with the heavy horse. He made it all sound like a grand adventure even though we got the details of troubles on the road. They did it all and the animals got their credit too. A wonderful true story. Claudia
