The Lovereading4Kids comment
Two boys, Adam and Salim, come face to face when they find themselves on opposing sides in a Holy war. Adam is part of a Crusade to reclaim Jerusalem from the infidels; Salim finds himself at the heart of Saladin’s camp. Must they be enemies? What are their differences? Crusade is a story from the past that provides food for thought about the present.
Crusade by Elizabeth Laird
Crusade is a richly detailed historical adventure, from Carnegie shortlisted author, Elizabeth Laird.
Two boys. Two faiths. One unholy war ...When Adam's mother dies unconfessed, he pledges to save her soul with dust from the Holy Land. Employed as a dog-boy for the local knight, Adam grabs the chance to join the Crusade to reclaim Jerusalem. He burns with determination to strike down the infidel enemy ...Salim, a merchant's son, is leading an uneventful life in the port of Acre - until news arrives that a Crusader attack is imminent. To keep Salim safe, his father buys him an apprenticeship with an esteemed, travelling doctor. But Salim's employment leads him to the heart of Sultan Saladin's camp - and into battle against the barbaric and unholy invaders ...
Expertly researched, vividly told
