Featured battle : Siege of Acre

Part of Third Crusade

Date : 10 August 1189 - 11 July 1191

A stalemate situation arose with Muslim troops defending the city with the investing Crusaders surrounding them and with Saladin's much larger force in turn surrounding them. The impasse was broken by the arrival of the kings of France and England who injected new spirit into the Crusaders. The city fell to the Crusaders.

Waterloo Archive Volume V: British Sources

Gareth Glover [Ed]
Another superb book in this series. This one has tapped a very rich seam of material hitherto inaccessible to anyone unable to read German. Though the whole book is most interesting Appendix 2 in particular appealed to me. It records some of the 'Glorious Feats' performed by men of the KGL and Hanoverian Army. There are also some excellent reproductions of original illustrations of uniforms and 'battle' scenes. See review of Volume VI for comment on the whole series.
