Description - Hugh Revel by Cecil Humphery-Smith
When Khan Batu and his Golden Horde were storming across Eastern Europe to lay waste to the disunited kingdoms of Christendom, a Knight of St John set out from Northamptonshire, in England, for the Holy Land. Hugh Revel, Master of the Hospitaller Knights of St John was the first and possibly only Englishman to have led the Order before the present Grand Master, Fra? Andrew Bertie. The Order of St John was a group of religious men dedicated to helping the sick and the poor. In this book Cecil Humphery-Smith identifies the work of one of its greatest Masters.
