The Crusades brings history alive as it chronicles the participants and their motives behind carrying the cross. Not only will you learn about the influential Christian leaders such as Richard the Lionheart, you'll also discover the strategies of the Muslim sultans, including the most respected in all of Islam, Saladin. You'll hear about the cultures and practices of the people.
The Crusades offers you a bird's eye view of what it must have been like to ship hundreds of thousands of men, thousands of horses, heavy battle equipment, and years of supplies over stormy seas or along the banks of the Nile. However, a better understanding of the crusaders might cause you to question if another crusade is brewing.

Burt Wolf Reads History
Would you try another book from Michael Klein and/or Richard Core?
If you have ever listened to Burt Wolf on PBS then you get an idea of what you are in for. The book is made quite basic for someone with no knowledge of the crusade but the narrator does not put any emotion in it. The knowledge was ok but was looking for more from narrator. This book does not paint a picture like David McCullough. Might be more for teen ager looking for basic info on the period
