Truth and History

by robert d on Mar 30, 2011

It was refreshing to read a book that seems to treat all sides fairly. No western bias prevelant. King Richard on display with all his valor, yet all his human shortcomings. The western forces talk about chivalry. But, maybe THE most chivalrous person of the time and events was Sallah Adin (Saladin). A great leader, a savior to a religion, and a magnanimous opponent. A must read for the history buff. Also, a great book for someone just begining to read from the history realm, or if just begining to read about the crusades. The style is so un-cumbersome that you can enjoy it as much as any fiction out there. One truth- the greatest stories have already been told. That is history. Do yourself a favor and enjoy this (hi)story.

Wonderful exposition of the personalities of Richard the Lion-hearted,Saladin ,Elinore of Aquitaine(and the French Prince) during the later Crusades. Very detailed account of daily life on both Christain and Saracen side. An historical work that is a page turner.


Warriors of God

by OSUstudent2008 on Mar 13, 2008

I thoroughly enjoyed Warriors of God by James Reston, despite a few inadequacies i noticed. His inability to make notations for his sources does not do anything for the credibility of his claims, such as his casual references to Richard the Lionheart's supposed homosexuality. This unsupported claim only lowers the credibility of the book. However, coming into the story with only a slight understanding of the events surrounding the Third Crusade, i found the book an extremely well written and engaging narrative. It reads almost more like novel than it does a historical narrative, and i think this is a plus. Altogether, an excellent narrative that gives the story of the Third Crusade in an engaging and interesting manner.
