Publisher's Summary

In a 2010 terrorist plot, Al-Qaeda hid a bomb in a FedEx shipment addressed to Reynald de Chatillon, a knight who had died centuries ago in the Crusades. A reviled figure in Islamic history, often portrayed as the very epitome of brutality, Reynald remains as controversial - and as vividly present in the minds of many in the Middle East - as the story of the Crusades themselves. An epic saga set in the midst of a violent clash of civilizations, God's Wolf tells the story of Reynald's staggering rise from lowly soldier to prince of Antioch, one of the crusader kingdoms in the Near East. Jeffrey Lee argues that, despite his brutality, Reynald was a strong military leader and an effective statesman who defended his kingdom against attacks from Byzantines, Armenians, and Muslims. A tale of faith, fanaticism, and brutality, God's Wolf is the fascinating story of an exceptional Crusader and a provocative reinterpretation of the Crusader era.

Move Over Ridley Scott . . . .

the truth is better than fiction.

I have been looking forward to this book for several months and I was not disappointed at all. Since this was my first look at de Chatillon's life and role in the Latin Kingdom's history, it was very enlightening. The book really opens up the intrigues in 12th century Jerusalem. The narration is also excellent. Highly recommended
