THE CRUSADES The Authoritative History of the War for the Holy Land

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Derek Perkins

History • 25.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

This lengthy audio history of the medieval Crusades spans centuries, and generations upon generations of kings and generals. It is an investment of more than a full day of one's life--and it's rewarding on a number of levels. Derek Perkins is, as always, a matchless narrator. One could relish this production entirely for the music of his pronunciation. Asbridge is a skilled storyteller, and each successive turn of events will command listener interest, even as all the previous campaigns and waves of battle blur in the mind. This is an epic tale, a history of the waxing and waning of medieval chivalry, and an advance staging for today's wars for religion and territory in the Middle East. D.A.W.
