"There is much to be learned here. Filled with fascinating historical glimpses of monks and Templars, priests and pilgrims, kings and contemplatives, Stark pulls it all together and challenges us to reconsider our view of the Crusades."--Publishers Weekly
"Stark's clear, factual narrative offers larger-than-life characters.... [his] works are an encouraging corrective to the anti-Western history routinely taught in our schools."--New Oxford Review
This book was as informative as it was entertaining. I could hardly put it down! Although there is a lot of information and facts for the reader to digest, it isn’t so much so as to overwhelm the reader. Details about battle formations, geography, and stories of prominent individuals all serve the greater purpose of proving Stark’s thesis and make his book a much more engaging and thrilling read.
