The Battle of Montgisard, 1177, by Charles-Philippe Larivière (Château de Versailles)
It is an inconvenient fact—and one studiously neglected by proponents of unrestricted global migration—that the main military participants in the politically incorrect and toxically masculine medieval Crusades were migrants. Nubian infantry, Egyptian cavalry, Armenian Turcopoles, European knights, and Turkic horsemen from the Eurasian steppes all migrated to the Levant during the High Middle Age period covered in Steve Tibble’s new book.

It is a full-scale reassessment of the warfare, armies, and enemies of the Western Crusades in the Middle East.
