The Life and Legend of the Sultan Saladin

Description

When Saladin recaptured Jerusalem from the Crusaders in 1187, returning the Holy City to Islamic rule for the first time in almost ninety years, he sent shockwaves throughout Christian Europe and the Muslim Near East that reverberate today. It was also the culmination of a supremely exciting life, a life brilliantly portrayed by Jonathan Phillips in this new biography of the great military and religious ruler.

“Vivid and authoritative, with glistening details on every page. Phillips explains Saladin’s ability to mesmerise not just through the achievements of his lifetime but through his inspiration of Arab leaders, including Nasser, Assad and Saddam Hussein, ever since” James Barr
