Regan is a skillful writer, and his pages are peppered with vivid odds and ends: pious crusaders operating "God's own catapult"; Saladin sending a gift of snow and fruit to Richard I, preparing to besiege Acre; small rodents called jerboas leaping up and alarming the crusaders.
Regan points out that this is one of the most amazing incidents in the entire history of military affairs during the crusade, or even during the medieval period.
