If you were brought up on the belief that Christians masses together to save the Holy Land from the Infidels who had desicrated the birth place of Jesus, this is a real eye-opener. The Title Cresent and Cross indicates the Muslin (Cresent) and the Christian (Cross) perspective. It is well discussed by scolars from both east and west. It prsents the epic battle between two Medieval super powers of the 12th and 13th centuries and debunks the hype fed to the Christians by the pope to further his political ends. It also shows the impact the invasion had on the resident Muslin population and the horeendous slughter of the innocents on both sides.

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.

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.
