In a biography as compelling and controversial as its subject, Richard I of England, “the Lionheart,” comes bursting to vivid life. Richard’s personality was as imposing as his legend, and his far-ranging adventures make fascinating reading. Travel with Richard through a lifetime dedicated to chivalric warfare, from his campaigns in France to his fearsome battles with the Muslim hero Saladin for control of the Holy Land. A commander who led from the front, Richard devised tactically brilliant military operations that are among the finest examples of the early use of combined arms; they are discussed in detail here. An extensive collection of maps, diagrams, and illustrations, as well as a special section featuring Richard in his own words, enhance the story of his dramatic life.

David Miller served in the British Army from 1956 to 1991 but took early retirement to become a journalist and to write books. He has had over 40 books published on subjects ranging from the Samurai through the Battle of Waterloo to the Cold War, and from a shipwreck in the Falkland Islands to the Crusades. Working on the latter book revived his interest in Richard the Lionheart, one of the greatest warrior-kings England has ever known.
