Crusaders - Fighting in a Suffering World

Crusaders  fighting in a suffering world

Each Crusade produced very high casualties for both sides.  This image, by Gustave Dore, depicts the artist's interpretation of events following the battle of Dorylaeum

From the Story of the Crusades, which Dore illustrated, this is image 16 (at page 66 of the 1892 edition).  This is its caption:

Burying the dead after the Battle of Dorylaeum

Returning to the battlefield to bury the dead, the Crusaders strip the Saracen corpses.
