The Arabs are coming, and Alex gives the order to attack. The battle flared up! The Arabs are swordsmen in front and rear mounted swordsmen and all the rest. Phalanx rushes into battle and pierces almost all swords, but the horse archers scatter in all directions. Archers shot at the left side bezostonovchno phalanx, and the right took up swords and ran to the attack. Sally Rooney has many thoughts on the issue. The battle ended in victory for the Crusaders, but this was only the first team. Alex understood that he for the capture of Jerusalem had to keep as many troops, so he decided to go himself to the Arabs, and now it will not trump superior numbers and surprise. The commander of the detachment of the enemy knew that a successful attack is necessary, that they had not detected early, so that his party had taken refuge in a small grove surrounded by cliffs.
But for Alexis it was also beneficial because it is intended that the Arabs will emerge from the forest, Alex with his army attacked them from behind the ambush. But it did not happen, the guard of Arabs, who stood on a rock, caught sight of an army of Alexei and his signaled. And Arabs in a very short time took up defensive positions. Although Alex took are not so many soldiers, but was not going to ask. He was lucky that earlier in this oasis located his reconnaissance unit, and from them he learned that the oasis is almost no water, just a rotten hole depth of approximately one and a half – two meters, so there is water.
