Editor’s note: I love this post. I love this story and I hope you do to.
This is the fourth in a series of posts about the Crusades. If you’re interested, I recommend starting with the first one which you can find here. Otherwise enjoy.
When I got it in mind to write an account of the Crusades, I had no idea just how incredible the story really was. My plan for this series was to provide you with a dramatic, historically accurate, tale of our manly Christian heritage. What I didn’t expect was how easy that would be… but I guess I’ll let you be the judge of that.
The first Crusade is possibly one of the most underappreciated events in military history.
