Richard the Lion Heart is demythologized as is Saladin the Magnificent the two leading players in the final struggle for control of the middle east.
CGI-enhanced visual provide heart-pounding reenactments, and stunning footage from rarely photographed locations to bring the first 3 crusades alive. As a student of Art History I thought I knew this story and I did have the basics, but this set brings the political intricacies of both sides, the insanity of who is right the Christians reclaiming Jesus' birthplace or the Muslins protecting the Dome of the Rock where Mohammed descended into Heaven. The money-grubbing invaders who went for profit not salvation are shown in their true light along with the true-believers.
There are also a facinating bonus documentary on the Knights Templer, probably the most misunderstood group of warrior monks in history. Do you know they were massacred on Friday the 13th in France for their land and riches and that's why today we're supersticious of the "badness" of Friday the 13th. That's the impact that this group of soldier-monks had on the world yesterday and today.Read more ›

Well done. Certainly kept my attention.
The Crusades unfortunately had nothing to to with Christian love. It's negative impact still felt today. Certainly a keeper.
