172010So far so good It is an interesting contrast to read about the Crusades and the Battle Lookout of Austerlitz at the same time5182010Well I have 40 pages left to read and I think this is a very non biased look at a periodf time which seems to be not much different than The Barbecue Bible other periods with people fighting and killing eachther because they don t believe the same and have differences I wonder if it will ever end If you think modern geopolitics war and religious imperialist urges are driven by the darkest and strangest f ur desires and fears look no further than the never ending banal brutality Colour Why the World Isn't Grey of the 200 yearsf the Crusades Oldenbourg adds by addition which means if you are stunned by your boredom at the continued carnage about 100 years into the brain twisting logistics and repeated attempts to take back lose and keep and lose the various parts El Manto / The Mantle (Spanish Edition) of holy land means you get the point An ever shifting alliances between various Christian and Islamic factions and the helpless population at their mercies makes the modern UN look like a kids birthday balloon party And if you think that the Crusades werever 800 years ago please look no further than Jerusalem yesterday You ll find yourself rooting for the most despicable people that ever rule Christendom if for no Torturers Thirst Warhammer 40000 other reason that you just want it to finally end And it did whenne Christian army sacked a fading Christian empire Huh The book does a decent job taking the reader through the various battles and intrigues Simplemente Quino / Simply Quino (Spanish Edition) of the aristocratic elitef the crusades European then the crusader states It thus serves as a decent Esos días azules (Spanish Edition) overviewf the political and military historyOverall it s hard not to wish that the author took a intellectual rather than romantic take to her subject material The book is riven with unsubstantiated andor racist claims For instance1 Assuming you made it past all the diseases and violence aging wasn t a huge deal Proof many Las vencedoras (Spanish Edition) old men were very vigorous according to historians and someld women were uite beautiful2 People were just smarter and inventive back in the day life hasn t gotten a lot better3 Modern day poor societies are culturally if not racially inferior4 Many chronicles Mayflower of the time can be taken at face value She criticizes some for bias but many accounts she readily acceptsOverall the book would have greatly benefited from nuance and less romance There is also a weird break 23f the way through where she finishes the political history and decides to go La hora más oscura/ The Darkest Hour (Los gatos guerreros / Warriors) (Spanish Edition) on a tourf Frankish society in the crusader states These threads should have been integrated rather than awkwardly separated This The Lost Jewels LibE

Introduction of the Roman Empire People engage in such false comparisons to emerge the superior and to justify following theirwn wishes without considering their pponent Thus the Crusaders were able to despise and despoil their Greek allies The fundamental difference lay in the co existence in the Western mind f two uite separate ideas the warrior and the Christian Byzantium never seems to have
