One person found hattib helpful. All in all, an excellent account of the battle of Hattin and the events leading up to it. The author seems to spend more time on the size, composition, weapons, and organization of the opposing forces than on the actual battle itself. Nevertheless, this is useful information in understanding the events of that fateful 4th of July in After eventually discussing the battle, the author spends time describing the follow on events that lead to the fall of Jerusalem.

In essence, this book covers much more than the battle itself. The results of this battle still echo through history. Also, Saladin is an historic figure who continues to influence the hattiin of modern day Muslims.

This book is a good way to obtain a quick understanding of that battle. The chapters are organized in the traditional Osprey style.

Also, the maps and illustrations are uattin. Like all Osprey books, it is a short read, coming in at less than a hundred pages. Nonetheless this is a valuable book for anyone with a particular interest in the Crusader era, and it is supplemented by numerous photographs, several Angus McBride paintings of the contemporary Islamic soldiers, and three bird’s eye view maps of the battlefield and troop movements.

Like all Osprey monographs, this book is well written, well illustrated, and very informative. The book provides background, describes the leaders and their armies, and traces the events and impact of the decisive defeat of Crusaders by Saladin’s Saracens in the late 12th Century.
