The Fourth Crusade was a diverse military action, which involved large-scale sieges, amphibious battles and landings and a combined action as the Crusaders fought side-by-side with Venetian troops. It is a fascinating tale of the betrayal of Byzantium, the clash of Western and Eastern Christian factions and the sacking of Constantinople.
