One of the Best Books I've Ever Read
God's Battalions by Rodney Stark! This was a revelation to me. It’s a popular work so it’s not real heavy history, but the presentation of the crusades and especially controversial things like the sack of Constantinople are presented in a totally different light from the way the American media and education system in general has taught us to perceive them. I can't recommend this book highly enough. Well written and thoroughly researched this is a definite must buy from last year.
