The Fourth Crusade And The Sack Of Constantinople

By Phillips, Jonathan

New York: Viking, 2004. First Edition. Hard Cover. Fine/Fine. 374pp; Red paperboards w/black cloth spine, index. Bibliography. Illustrations. Dust Jacket is protected with clear mylar cover. In 1202, zealous western Christians gathered in Venice determined to liberate Jerusalem from the grip of Islam. But the crusaders never made it to the Holy Land. Steered forward by the shrewd Venetian doge, they descended instead on Constantinople, wreaking devastation so terrible and inflicting scars so deep that as recently as 2001 Pope John Paul II offered an apology to the Greek Orthodox Church. Knights and commoners, monastic chroniclers, courtly troubadours, survivors of the carnage, and even Pope Innocent III left vivid accounts detailing the events of those two fateful years. Using their remarkable letters, chronicles, and speeches, Phillips traces the way in which any region steeped in religious fanaticism, in this case Christian Europe, might succumb to holy war.

The Road to Verdun: World War I's Most Momentous Battle and the Folly of Nationalism

By Ousby, Ian

New York: Doubleday, 2002. First American Edition. Hard Cover. Fine/Fine. 393pp, black paper boards with red cloth spine. Maps, illustrations, sources and index. Dust Jacket is protected with clear mylar cover. From inside flap..."A powerfully immediate and controversial account of one of the longest and bloodiest engagements of World War I. In mid-February 1916, the Germans launched a surprise major offensive at Verdun, an important fortress in northeast France. By mid-March, more than 90,000 French troops had been killed or wounded. The fighting continued for seven long months, with casualties on both sides mounting in astonishing numbers. By the end of the year, the battle had claimed more than 700,000 victims. The butchery had little impact on the course of the war, and Verdun soon became the most potent symbol of the horrors of the war in general, and of trench warfare in particular. In telling the story of Verdun, Ousby demonstrates that the confrontation marked a critical midpoint in Franco-German hostility. The battle not only carried the burden of history, but with the presence on the battlefield of France’s future leaders–including Pétain and de Gaulle it fed an increasingly venomous enmity between France and Germany, and lay the groundwork for World War II."
