Summary
"The Crusade of Varna of 1443-45 was one of the decisive events of the late Middle Ages: it was Murad's victory at Varna that secured Ottoman domination of the Balkan Peninsula. This book presents the first English translation of three important works which provide eyewitness accounts of the dramatic events of 1443-45 from the Christian and the Muslim side: an anonymous Ottoman text on 'The Holy Wars of Sultan Murad'; a section of the 'Anciennes Chroniques d'Angleterre' by the Bugundian, Jehan de Wavrin, and a German ballad on the Crusade by Michel Beheim. These are supplemented by a series of shorter contemporary texts relating to the events of the crusade, an introduction and annotation."--Jacket
