Sort order. Start your review of Saladin: Hero Of Islam. Jun 16, Amy Chichi Hsiao rated it it was amazing Shelves: history , non-fiction , favorite. This books has to come with a big map. Otherwise you get confused or even bored. The theory about jihad makes perfect sense and somehow entertaining.
Even though the narration jumped from battle in Hattin to previous decades and thus is a bit hard to follow, it's still highly informing and entertaining if you're a big enough fan of history. My problems with this book 1 I couldn't manage to memorize all the names of Saladin's families and Syrian cities Al-Adil, al-Shaubak I had to check Wiki to figure out who they were. But still, the whole process is overall highly entertaining.
May 13, Price rated it really liked it. It is an engaging story which I viewed as a loose interpretation of historical events. The character Saladin intrigued me. His portrayal as a brilliant military tactician, a man of honor, and a man of wisdom prompted further research into this unique personalicty. It was a pleasure to read this biography of such an honorable man and war One of my favorite films is Ridley Scott's the Kingdom of Heaven with such notable actors as Orlando Bloom, Eva Green, and Ghassan Massoud as Saladin. It was a pleasure to read this biography of such an honorable man and warrior.
I was surprised to read that a great deal of the story in the film was indeed based on historical accounts. It gave me a deeper appreciation of the film and Saladin's character. It has prompted me to pursue further research in the history of this man. He stands out as one of the great leaders in history. May 25, Mutia fatimah rated it really liked it. View 2 comments. Nov 01, Pablo Rossello rated it it was ok. Haven't finished it yet, but it came across as being a bit too specific and complex for my interests. The messy nature of Syrian politics at the time with new dynasties arising every fortnight doesn't help make it an easy read.
Will get back to it sometime I hope.
Saladin : Hero Of Islam
The chapters on Saladin's uprbringing in Baalbek and Damascus are quite entertaining though, and the section on 'the quadrilateral of power' i. More maps in the appendix section and a couple of more images especially portraits of the numerous characters would have certainly helped.

Oct 23, Fahmeed rated it liked it. You can't just read this book once, the map provided helps to understand the phases in the chapters. Allot of information which I'll probably have to pick up on again in the future. Couldn't resist not reading it when I saw it. I love reading about ancient warfare and the book is descriptive when talking about circumstances and how they would make decisions.
A well-written and balanced biography, in its historical context, of one of the great leaders of history. The world lack such great individuals who do what needs to be done to obtain the desired outcome, all the while keeping their sense of humanity. Jun 22, Felix Siauw rated it really liked it.

Saladin: Hero Of Islam by Geoffrey Hindley
Honestly didn't expect this book to be this boring. Highly recommended This book was very well written. Rather misleadingly, with the title and the introductory blurb on the inside flap, I took this to be a biography. As it turns out, it is far more of a generic retelling of the history of the Third Crusade from a Muslim ie non-Frankish perspective than actually being an interesting focus on the personal life of one of the most famous warriors in history.
So on that front, it's quite disappointing as you're led to believe you're going to get some sort of profound insight into what moti Rather misleadingly, with the title and the introductory blurb on the inside flap, I took this to be a biography. So on that front, it's quite disappointing as you're led to believe you're going to get some sort of profound insight into what motivated the man or what he was like as a person, beyond the usual assumptions and such. In other words, this is no biography, it's a history of the Third Crusade and one that doesn't particularly set your mind aflame.
If anything, the detail is a little indecipherable at times, though it deserves credit for filling me on more details about the disunity between the Syrians which prolonged the conflict with the Frankish invaders in the long run. Jul 21, Hassan Jawaid rated it it was amazing. One of the most influential figures in the history of warriors Dec 01, Mike Wigal rated it liked it. But this book gave a more in depth background story of Saladin's early years and rise to power.
