Story

Saladin's target is JerusalemSaladin's target is Jerusalem. The great, ancient city is sacred to Christianity, Judaism, and Islam and is the virtual capital of the Holy Land. If there can be a victor in this endless conflict, it will he the army who holds Jerusalem.
The last time I entered JerusalemThe last time I entered Jerusalem, as a Crusading knight, I waded through the blood of victims. This time, not a building was looted, not a townsperson was injured. Saladin set free nearly every prisoner he took.

Objectives

Do not allow any Jerusalem Monastery or the Dome of the Rock be destroyed. Destroy the 5 towers defending Jerusalem so that Saladin's army can occupy the city.

Hints

Cut off Jerusalem's food supply by raiding outlying farms. The two Orders of Knighthood have outlying bases that should be dealt with before assaulting the city. Trebuchets can make short work of towers from a distance.
