This book is dedicated to my deceased wife, Lorraine, who I'm sure would be pleased that I finally got to illustrate a book by such a great writer. - John Watkiss
First words
"War is in the wind - the ravens are gathering."
"I have conquered," answered Baibars, shaken for the first time in his wild life, "but I am half-blind - and of what avail to slay men of that breed? They will come again and again and again, riding to death like a feast because of the restlessness of their souls, through all the centuries. What though we prevail this little Now? They are a race unconquerable, and at last, in a year or a thousand years, they will trample Islam under their feet and ride again through the streets of Jerusalem."
And over the red field of battle night fell shuddering.
