Details:  The Life of Saladin,
Paperback - 112 pages,
by Sir Hamilton Gibb,
Foreward by Robert Irwin.

Description :


Saladin, may Allah have mercy upon his soul, the Kurdish founder of the Ayyubid Dynasty, ruled Egypt and Syria, made enemies of the fabled Assassins and conquered Jerusalem in 1187, repelling the Crusaders (and prompting their resurgence in the Third Crusade). His chivalry and impeccably honourable conduct became enshrined in European as well as Muslim lore, influencing a long line of poets and historians.


Sir Hamilton Gibb's seminal account of Saladin's life calls upon the works of two men in particular - Baha' ad-Din ibn Shaddad (d.1234), a military judge who served under Saladin and 'Imad ad-Din al-Isfahani (d.1201), Saladin's private secreary.


Meticulously annotated, Gibb’s classic is an essential reference for historians as well as an excellent introduction to a fascinating historical figure.
