Product Description

When Pope Urban II rose to his feet to address the multitudes gathered before him at the Council of Clermont in 1095, his appeal was simple: let Western Christendom march to the aid of their brethren in the East. Whether the Crusades are regarded as the most tremendous and romantic of Christian expeditions or the last of the barbarian invasions, they remain one of the most exciting and colorful adventure stories in history. Steven Runicman's History of the Crusades is justly acclaimed as the most complete and fascinating account of the historic journey to save the Holy Land from the infidel.

    This book provided an easy read into the history behind the crusade but failed to give an account for the causes and the effects of the first crusade. There are several issues that the author simply overlooked such as the terroristic campaign Caliph Omar engaged in before his 638 A.D. entry into Jerusalem as recorded in sermons made by the Jerusalem Patriarch Governor Sophronius. DO NOT READ THIS BOOK ALONE! I recommend multiple sourses for a more concise analysis of the First Crusade.
