Crusaders Set Off to Attack Damascus

Crusaders Set Off to Attack Damascus

Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem in 1135
Source: Wikipedia

Crusaders set off to begin an attack on Damascus. The Crusader army is made up of forces under the command of Baldwin III, survivors of Conrad III's trip across Anatolia, and the cavalry of Louis VII of France who had sailed directly to Jerusalem (his infantry was supposed to march to Palestine, but they had all been killed along the way).

The attack, which occurs in July, will be a complete fiasco.
