When you hear the word crusades, what do you think of? Does the image of barbaric, murderous hordes of the religious fantastic violently attacking innocents in the name of religion come to mind? Do you perhaps think that the primary reason for the Crusades was to wage war against the infidel? Truth be told, there's a lot of different perspectives on the Crusade, but there's only one truth. With The Crusades: A Historical Look at the Crusades Across the Ages and the Fierce Battle for the Holy Land, we put to rest the many different myths and outright lies about The Crusades, while taking you on a tour of the Seven Major Crusades. Inside this book you'll find the true tale of how Medieval Europe was forever changed due to a revolutionary call from the Pope, a call to retrieve the Holy Land. If you've always wanted to know what actually happened to the Crusades, have access to a quick and easy overview of Seven Crusades or are just looking for a bit of medieval history to listen to, this is your book.
Our goal is to provide you with an even, honest look at a brutal time period, not pulling any punches while also making sure that you are well informed about the reality of the Crusades and that ultimately you find that the modern attitude toward the Crusades grossly misunderstood just what went on in that era.
this was a decent review of the crusades and pieced together history. wish it had some more first person accounts.
