The Conquest Of Constantinople
The Fourth Crusade (1202-1204) comprised French knights and Venetian sailors; they set out to capture the Holy Land but ended up sacking Constantinople, the Byzantine capital. Robert of Clari, an obscure knight from Picardy, provides an extraordinary account of the trials, travails, and decidedly mixed triumphs of the Fourth Crusade. Told from the perspective of an ordinary soldier,The Conquest of Constantinople offers a rare and colorful firsthand description of the crusaders' various experiences, including the hardships they endured and the battles they fought.
