"Backing Up Byzantium"
"All-Out Holy War"
"The Kingdom of Heaven"
"The King’s Crusade"
"The Self-Defeating Crusade"
"The Final Crusades"
"The Post-Crusade World"
The Crusades took place over 1,000 years ago, and yet we currently live in a modern-day world of unspeakable terror. Islamic extremists are disrupting the entire planet, murdering, raping, and enslaving everyone they encounter. Committing brutalities on a scale that rivals some of the worst abuses of the dark ages, and yet people still point to the Crusades as if it is supposed to mean something. Ok, that’s fine. If detractors wish to point their finger and call out history, let’s find the truth, and let’s find out what really happened.

Great for a general overview,
Great general overview. I guess I was looking for more details, like the actual preaching of the crusades, and the reasons why so many were willing to go (feudalism ending, the church granting dispensations, etc.). Left out too much. Might be a good jr. High school book.

Not up to Audible's usual standards
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
More of a professional historical approach, less overt anti-Muslim bias. The introductory rant about Isis was unnecessary.
What do you think your next listen will be?
Something in the history category.
What do you think the narrator could have done better?
The narrator is a good reader, but as Horace said in Ars Poetica: "The workmanship exceeds the material."
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Crusades: A History from Beginning to End?
I am wondering if anyone at Audible read this book !!
