Barony of Raven's Cove
THE BATTLE OF ARSULF
Having successfully completed the siege of Acre in July 1191, Crusader forces began moving south. Led by King Richard the Lionhart of England, they sought to capture the port of Jaffa before turning inland to reclaim Jerusalem.
Saladin began shadowing Richard’s forces. As Crusader armies had proven notoriously undisciplined in the past, he began a series of harassing raids on Richard’s flanks with the goal of breaking up their formation. This doe, his cavalry could seep in for the kill. Assessing Richard’s route, Saladin elected to make a stand near the town of Arsulf, just north of Jaffa. Arraying his men facing west, he anchored his right on the forest of Arsulf and his left on a series of hills to the south. To his front was a narrow two-mile wide plain extending to the coast.
Aware of Saladin’s presence, Richard ordered his men to prepare for battle. Who is going to win this important battle? Come to the Barony of Raven’s Cove Un-Birthday celebration . Test your skills and see if you can help decide the winner.
