    Inhaltsangabe

    The Crusades is an authoritative, accessible single-volume history of the brutal struggle for the Holy Land in the Middle Ages. Thomas Asbridge - a renowned historian who writes with "maximum vividness" (Joan Acocella, The New Yorker) - covers the years 1095 to 1291 in this big, ambitious, listenable account of one of the most fascinating periods in history. From Richard the Lionheart to the mighty Saladin, from the emperors of Byzantium to the Knights Templar, Asbridge's book is a magnificent epic of holy war between the Christian and Islamic worlds, full of adventure, intrigue, and sweeping grandeur.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "Derek Perkins is, as always, a matchless narrator. One could relish this production entirely for the music of his pronunciation." ( AudioFile)

    Cloaked in a coat of religion

    Even when every occidental warrior was wearing the sign of the cross on
    his/her coat, religion was but a thin coating for the majority of the
    common warriors who largely pursued their personal agendas of freedom,
    lust for adventure, sexual predation and riches whereas their
    leaders took the battle motivation to advance their own power
    schemes. In retrospect - peering through the mist of times - all
    participants loose their individuality and deviations from the norm
    and are associated to their stereotypes: noble or not, Christian or
    Muslim, aggressor or victim, etc. This seems to be the message
    that resonates with every additional drop of detail in this well
    crafted book. The claim of "authoritative" is Utopian as every new
    discovery puts a once believed truth in perspective, but on the
    whole the book remains an interesting read and a useful suggestion to
    all individuals who try to create story 2.0 of this unnecessary
    bloody history.

    Very concise but very well written book

    This is a very good book on the Crusades. I found it a very concise but at the same time exciting book on middle eastern medieval history.
