    1. A rather lackluster and confused introductory text to the Crusades against Muslim states during XII:th and XIII:th century. The main problem with this book is its surprisingly confused structure. Very little space is dedicated to the actual history of the events, perhaps ten-twelve pages of text in total. The rest is more or less wasted on insane amount of snippets taken from contemporary documents and literary works and mini-biographies of seemingly random personalities of the period. Purpose o [...]


    2. Covering a period over over 200 years in a 90 page book was never going to work however Osprey and David Nicolle have provided a thought provoking introduction to the period. By it's very nature it is very much an overview and - uncommonly in the Osprey series - has no indepth battles, perhaps due to the 200 years of conflict. There were a lot of full page pictures and maps (the former perhaps slightly overdone, but the latter very useful).A lot of cities and areas currently in the news are ment [...]


    3. This is the first volume in the enormous Essential Histories series from Osprey Publishing. If you're considering reading these books, I wouldn't recommend starting with this one. If you do, please realize that this one isn't a very good representative of the series. Most of the volumes are excellent, with a good blend of detailed accounts of individual battles, interesting descriptions of historical figures, and informative information about the general setting and attitudes of the time. This v [...]


    4. A very brief introductory history of the crusades. While this is too big a topic for the space available the author does a good job of giving an outline of the events that occurred, although I do not agree with the "modern" view which he clearly ascribes to that the crusades were evil western aggression against a Muslim people who had been living in tolerant peace with their Christian & Jewish neighbours for centuries. They were tolerant while they were clearly dominant but this disappeared [...]


    5. "Overview" history texts have a difficult task, since their aim is generally to provide an introductory look at a very large subject. This installation is no different, but it does have some nice ideas behind it: the Crusades are approached not merely from a military or religiously triumphalist attitude, and space is given to discussing interesting figures from the period as well, while attempts are made at providing some context. Additionally, the text makes liberal use of quotations from prima [...]


    6. Considering the broad topic I think this is as good as an overview on 100 pages can get. The best part is that it is very well illustrated - I relly liked both the (many) maps and the photographs. Overall, I can say that I enjoyed it very much.


    7. A great reference work with outstanding maps showing troop placements and movements.As best as they can guess, I suppose. After all, it was 1096. Not a lot of video confirmation.
