Fascinating introduction, hampered by its narrator
The book gives a fascinating overview of the many different activities and contexts of the crusades. Sadly, the audio book version suffers from a speaker whose pronunciation of French, German, and Latin phrases and names, of which there are plenty in the text, often leaves the listener clueless as to what is being referred to, making it difficult to follow the content. This is a shame, since his narration is otherwise very engaging.
