Overview of the Crusades and their Place In Histor
Where does The New Concise History of the Crusades rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
This book is a great overview of the Crusades and their historical significance. By its own admission it is not extremely in depth which I think is helpful, it gives you an overview of the story. Some specific instances of battles and their consequences. It doesn't get bogged down in any minutia that some historians feel the need to do.
I was very glad the book went into the the role the Mongols played in the Crusades whom I have studied quite a bit.
The narrator did an excellent job and really kept the flow of the book going well. If you are like me and listen on the iOS Audible app at 2x or 3x speeds, Claton Butcher's voice easily handles the speed increase without sounding clipped.
Enjoy this book.
