The Last Crusaders is about the titanic contest between Hadsburg-led Christendom and the Ottoman Empire in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, the last great conflict between East and West - the battles that were fought and the men who led the armies that fought them. It was, in its way, the first world war.

Review quote

Praise for "The Last Crusaders" ?This thoroughly readable book provides a vibrant and well-organized account of this tumultuous, lesser-known period of history. Highly recommended for both students and general readers.? --"Library Journal" (Starred Review) ?Barnaby Rogerson paints a vivid canvas, sweeping in scope and full of memorable detail... The author is especially good at narrating in gripping, and often grisly, detail the great sieges and battles that punctuated this struggle. The book is furnished with excellent maps, a useful chronological chart, numerous illustrations, and a very full bibliography. The writing is engaging and vivid, never pedantic. Any history buff will find this book a pleasure.? --"ForeWord Review"
