Description

This is a carefully researched and illuminating study of siege warfare in the twelfth century. The siege was an integral part of medieval military experience, and was particularly significant in the Mediterranean region. Dr Rogers explores siege warfare and the role it played in the First Crusade and the establishment of the Crusader States, in Italy, Spain, and Portugal, and in the seaborne expeditions of the Italian maritime states. Dr Rogers sets out to discover how it was that crusading forces handicapped by rudimentary organisation and logistical support were able to conduct some of the most dramatic siege operations of the pre-gunpowder period. He traces the development and diffusion of techniques; and analyses the experience of siege warfare in every aspect, from the question of supplies of component parts for siege engines to the often complex political situations of besieger and besieged. This is a book which contributes not only to the military history of the twelfth century but also to its political and cultural history. 'excellent work, written by a scholar who has a thorough grasp of the subject and who presents it in a lucid manner.' Speculum 'an excellent work ...a fine study, full of intriguing ideas for readers interested in crusading, municipalities, and the role of warfare. ' The Historian 'Rogers's book is an excellent look at the medieval world's most bellicose century.' American Historical Review.
