    1. This is not popular history and I wouldn't recommend it to non-academic types, but I found it very interesting. I hadn't realized that so little is known about the Children's Crusade -- everything I thought I knew has never been verified and may very well be made up. The author is an excellent historiographer and myth buster.


    2. Reading other reviews I thought this would be a harder read. While it wasn't 'easy' it was not difficult. And even though the author crushed all the myths of the Children's Crusade and made me sad I still liked it. History trumps myth!
