During the Middle Ages, many Christians in Europe set off on crusades to the Middle East. The conflicts that occurred as a result of these “holy pilgrimages” created deep divisions between the two cultures. However, along with conflict arose new techniques on the battlefield, including innovations in weaponry and fighting tactics. This book explores the history of the crusades and the inventions that manifested during this time.
