English & French Crusaders Penetrate Outermost Two Walls of Acre

Siege of Acre: English and French Crusaders manage to penetrate the outermost of Acre's two defensive walls.

This time, Saladin is unable to launch a counter-attack large enough to distract the Crusaders and allow the defenders of Acre to repair the breaches. This creates a hold in the city defenses that's large enough for the Crusaders to be able to take the city, if they are able to mount an assault that's large enough.

The leaders of the Third Crusade, King Richard I of England and King Philip II Augustus of France, now know that the capture of Acre is close at hand.
