    1. Hilaire Belloc is never an easy read but pressing through is always well worth the challenge. In this book, he gives fascinating historical background re: the political landscape of Medieval Europe and how it affected the success and failure of the Crusades. He details how feudal Europe hampered the participants in truly organizing the Crusade against Islamic control over the Holy Land our current understanding of nations and nation states have nothing in common with feudal Europe and its many [...]


    2. The Crusades, by Hilaire Belloc, this book has all the benefits, and suffers all the problems of a book written in it's era. Belloc, an Anglo French writer, friend to G.K. Chesterton, has done very good research, and is unhampered by many of the biased and pre or miss conceptions of our age.One will gain a better, and I say, a more correct, more scholarly view of the Crusades and those who participated, more inline with modern real scholarly work, and less like the popular view.One should have a [...]


    3. The analysis still holds up today. Many indict Christianity over the Crusades. It, however, was a testament to western civilization. the intent was anyway. I wonder what Hilaire would have thought about the events of the last 20 or so years


    4. An excellent over all history of the economic, political and cultural ramifications of the Crusading movement to include the Baltics and Spain. I would prefer more military implications but it was interesting to learn how much Western culture is beholden to the Levant -- particularly modern day Syria -- and the impact the Crusades had on medicine, ancient history and mathematics.


    5. Belloc excels in writing what for him was apparently a chore of a book. Fortunately, it is not so for the reader. Having read extensively on the Crusades, I have to admit that Belloc's perspective was novel; I learned plenty and chewed upon much more.


    6. A long book but fascinating and detailed in its scope. Certainly some bias in its insights but it doesn't disrupt the value.


    7. Recommended by James Schall in Another Sort of Learning, Chapter 12, as one of Ten Books by Hilaire Belloc Well Worth Reading.



    8. Kind of dragged in the last third, but is definitely another outstanding work from Belloc. Very informative, very opinionated, very hard to disagree with. Belloc is a master.
