We have quite a bit of documentation of the swords of Crusaders. For those defending... not so much.
From the sources I've read, the swords being used at this time were straight and double-edged (as opposed to the archetyal scimitar of the Middle East). But aside from that... I've got nothing.
Suffice to say, I now want to start comparing straight swords between cultures. Anyone have any knowledge of this subject? In fact, if there's a source concerning the arms and armor of the Middle East during this time period, do please direct me.
