The First Crusade book.
Thomas Asbridge's new history, The First Crusade, is a breath of fresh air. Few topics in history have been as mistreated and misused as the Crusades, giving rise to a great deal of popular rhetoric that has all but obscured the actual events themselves. Asbridge's book, however, cuts through the great majority of the myths and confronts the reader with real 11th-century men with real 11th-century concerns and beliefs.

Beginning with the electrifying speech delivered by Pope Urban II on the last Tuesday of November in the year 1095, readers will follow the more than 100,000 men who took up the call from their mobilization in Europe (where great waves of anti-Semitism resulted in the deaths of thousands of Jews), to their arrival in Constanstinople, an exotic, opulent.
Nine hundred years ago the Pope initiated one of the most controversial episodes in Christian history by stating that God wanted European knights to wage a fierce and bloody war against Islam and recapture Jerusalem. Thus was the First Crusade born. Its story is compelling, capable of inspiring awe through tales of bold adventure and revulsion through excesses of violence and barbarity, while at the same time providing us with significant insights into medieval society, morality and mentality. Tom Asbridge re-creates this fascinating period of history in a stunning narrative.
