Shias in the world, and unfortunately some small amount of sunnis are confident that Yazid was the only one person who was responsible for murdering of Husayn (r.a).
But this is not true.
Let us see who was accused by Husayn (r.a) himself in regards to this crime.
In “Muntahal Amal” by sheikh of shias Abbas Qummi (1/535), we can see Husayn saying to people who inviting him to Kufa:
اللهم أحكم بيننا وبين قوم دعونا لينصرونا فقتلونا
Translation: O Allah! Judge between us and people, that called us (here) to help us and then killed (fought) us.
Check any known historic shia or sunni books. That was shias of Kufa that called Husayn (r.a) to their city, and then due to fear, hypocrisy, money they betrayed him and killed him.

May peace and blessings of Allah be upon you all,
Some cute Shi’tes claimed that the Ahadith in which the Prophet SAWS tells us to fast the tenth of Muharram “Ashura” is a fabrication by the Umayyads and they accuse Mu’awiyah (ra) of this (Although it’s narrated by many others), what the cute Shi’ites didn’t know is that these Ahadith are found in al-Bukhari and Muslim which were written many years after the Umayyad Caliphate fell, so there was no “political pressure” … but enough about this, let’s just quote it from their own books by their own narrators and from their own Imams:
علي بن الحسن بن فضال عن هارون بن مسلم عن مسعدة بن صدقة عن ابي عبد الله عن أبيه عليهما السلام ان عليا عليه السلام قال: صوموا العاشورا التاسع والعاشر فانه يكفر ذنوب سنة. كتاب تهذيب الاحكام ج4ص299
‘Ali bin al-Hassan bin Faddal from Haroun bin Muslim from Masa’adah bin Sadaqah from Imam abu ‘Abdullah from his Father that ‘Ali (as) said: “Fast on ‘Ashoora the ninth and tenth for it removes the sins of a whole year.”
source: Tahtheeb al-Ahkam 4/299 & Wasael al-Shia 10/457.
`Āshūra (10th of Muḥarram): A Day of Joy or Grief?

Knowing the Sirah of the Sahaba & Ahl Al-Bayt is something every Muslim should strife for, especially the great figures amongst them such as Al-Hussein Ibn Ali Ibn Abi Talib. Now the problem is that the net is filled with Rafidi exaggeration and lies, they flooded the net (just as the Chrstians flooded the net with THEIR version of Jesus), so it is sometimes frustrating. Of course there are LOADS of books in Arabic (even classical books and in Tarikh books such as in the ‘Al-Bidayah wa Al-Nihayah’ of the student of Ibn Taymiyyah, i.e. Hafidh Ibn Kathir you will find lots of information about the tragedy of Karbala), yet most of them are not translated (heck many creed books are not even translated yet).
There is one book we would like to recommend (click on the image to download):
The book is basically a compilation of various Muslims (Sunni) sources in regards to the tragedy of Karbala.
I am interested in knowing what exactly happened in the battle of Karbala? I would also like to ask if there are any good books you could advise me in buying that could explain to me what happened in this battle.
