    Reading the relatively slim The Cross and the Crescent: The Dramatic Story of the Earliest Encounters Between Christians and Muslims, historian Richard Fletcher’s new book on this history, is a worthy albeit slightly flawed introduction to the wars, the trade, cultural, and even the sexual relationships between two seemingly different.   During the Russo-Turkish War of , however, the Ottoman Empire used not the standardized red cross banner to signify first aid providers on the battlefield, but the red crescent.

    Crescent and Iron Cross by E. F. Benson I have used these freely in such chapters of this book as deal with recent and contemporary events in Turkey or in Germany in connection with Turkey: the chapter, for instance, entitled "Deutschland ]ber Allah," is based very largely on such documents. The straight lines of the cross are in stark contrast to the curvature of the crescent, and at first sight, the crescent and the cross seem to represent two incompatible faiths. The crescent represents the moon, and by extension, darkness. The cross represents the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ, and by extension, brilliant light, as with the sun.
