"The defeat of the People's Crusade in Xerigordos", a 15th-century French manuscript illustration. #CrusadesEpisodes
________

Peter and the remaining crusaders then left Cologne about 20 April, and finally they reached Constantinople about 4 months later where they met the Byzantine Emperor, Alexius I Comnenus. After seeing the disorganized “army” himself, Alexius had urged Peter the Hermit not to engage the Turks, whom he believed to be superior to Peter's weak army, and suggested him to wait for the main body of crusaders, which was still on the way.
__

However, Peter and his crusaders entourage didn’t heed the emperor’s advice, and moved more boldly until they reached the edge of Nicaea, a Seljuk Turks stronghold and provincial capital, where they pillaged the suburbs. Unsatisfied with the pillaging results in Nicaea, 6000 German crusaders marched again on Xerigordos and captured the city's fortress to use as a base to raid the countryside. Unfortunately, there was no water system inside the fortress, forcing them to drink the blood of donkeys and their own urine during the siege.

In response, the Turks army recovered Xerigordos from the exhausted crusaders in just a short amount of time, and later some who were captured converted to Islam and were sent as slaves to Khorasan, while others who refused to abandon their faith were killed. #PartThree

A well timed suggestion from @ww2_historypics and their advice. "A great book for anyone who wants to know more about Operation Dynamo before watching the film Dunkirk directed by Christoper Nolan, or reading it after watching the film to fill the gaps in the film". We all know Dunkirk was a great tragedy for the BEF. The saving grace being that the nation rallied to save as many men as possible and they did a remarkable job in doing so. Can't wait to see the film. I suggest you all read up and watch it. Thanks again for sharing @ww2_historypics

"A disastrous defeat for the People's Crusade", a 15th-century manuscript illustration. #CrusadesEpisodes
________

Back at the main crusaders' camp, two Turkish spies had spread rumor that the Germans who had taken Xerigordos city had also taken Nicaea, which caused excitement to get there as soon as possible. Their leader Peter had gone back to Constantinople to arrange for supplies and was due back soon, and most of the leaders argued to wait for him to return (which he never did). However, Geoffrey Burel, who had popular support among the masses, argued that it would be cowardly to wait, and they should move against the Turks right away.
__

His will prevailed and, on the morning of 21 October, the entire army of 20,000 marched out toward Nicaea, leaving women, children, the old and the sick behind at the camp. Just 3 miles from the camp, the Turkish army was waiting to ambush. When approaching the valley, the crusaders marched noisily and were immediately subjected to a hail of arrows. Panic set in immediately and within minutes, the army was in full rout back to the camp. Most of the crusaders were slaughtered; however, women, children, and those who surrendered were spared.
__

Three thousand, including Geoffrey Burel, were able to obtain refuge in an abandoned castle. These few thousand, the only survivors of the People's Crusade, fortunately were able to return to Constantinople. #End

Making my own phone case cover :3 I originally drew it on the wrong dimensions so it was an absolute pain in the ass but it looks nice in the end so there's that. Now all I need is a good printer

We've heard it said, we stand on the shoulders of giants. This often is overlooked because of pain separating the generations. The gaps of disunity are filled in when we choose to love one another and honour one another's irreplaceable role in stewarding revival to form history.
