Product Description

In 1521, Suleiman the Magnificent, Muslim ruler of the Ottoman Empire, dispatched an invasion fleet to the Christian island of Rhodes. This would prove to be the opening shot in an epic clash between rival empires and faiths for control of the Mediterranean and the center of the world. Roger Crowley, author of 1453, presents a thrilling account of this brutal decades-long battle between Christendom & Islam for the soul of Europe, a fast-paced tale of spiraling intensity that ranges from Istanbul to the Gates of Gibraltar, featuring a wild cast of pirates, crusaders, & religious warriors struggling for supremacy & survival. 334p.
