    I liked this because of the way it is set out. I used this for my a level history and found it really easy to understand and use the passages.

    An excellent overview of the first three Crusades, highlighting exactly what happened during them (as much as historical sources allow) and outlining the state of the Levant in between all three. It gives both sides and is really a joy to read.Phillips really seems to know his stuff.

    Clear and concise summaries of the different aspects before, during and after the crusading era.

    A brief history of the first three Crusades and what brought the West into Asia to fight a "Holy War". Fairly easy to understand with a list of people who were pertinent to the times of the Crusades.
