Enumerating the Battles, Skirmishes, and Naval Actions at the Siege of Acre

Lecture by John Hosler

Paper given at the Session: Aspects and Events of Medieval Military History, 452-1346, at the 50th International Congress on Medieval Studies, held at Western Michigan University, on May 14, 2015

John D Hosler, Associate Professor at Morgan State University, discusses his research into the military events that took place during the Siege of Acre (1189-1191), one of the key events of the Third Crusade. Hosler examines the many episodes during the siege, which involved Saladin’s Egyptian and Syrian troops, fighting against crusader forces that were eventually joined by kings Philip Augustus and Richard I. Hosler is currently working on a book about the Siege of Acre.
