After the defeat and near-annihilation of the Latin Crusaders at Hattin, 1187AD, the Church called for a new Crusade to recapture the "Christian heritage" in the East.
The result was the largest Crusade ever to take place: all the major monarchs of Europe took up the cross, left their countries and their people behind and marched on the Holy Land. Among them was one of England's most legendary kings, Richard the Lionheart. The battle of wills that took place between him and Saladin over the course of 1191-92 was among the greatest and most epic confrontations of all time.
Take on Richard’s role and command him and his army to victory as the most famous events of the Third Crusade unfold...

Can you tell me how to get the boat to work.I brought King Richard and the Duke to the Boat and garrisoned few soldiers inside the boat. But it just sits there. What am I doing wrong?

Well, I think this campaign is rather well done, not to mention the accurate history of it; so I'd say this is definately worth the download. Although there is one bug i found during the battle outside Jaffa. Other than that, congratulations, Duncan.
