    Crusades: A Poisonous Chalice Drunk to the Bitter End

    The Crusades Crescent & the Cross, a two-DVD set by The History Channel, gives a satisfactory overview of the first three crusades in Volume I. The program would have gained in credibility by giving a more balanced view of the underlying events. The crusades were first and foremost an answer to the relentless advance of Islam in the Near East. However, The History Channel rightly highlights the atrocities that crusaders committed against Muslims, Jews, and some fellow Christians during the crusades. Volume II contains an interesting overview of the religious, military order of the knights Templar. The bonus program called “History in the Making: The Crusades” in Volume II does not add anything significant to the narration of the first three crusades. Most viewers probably do not care too much about how The History Channel produces Volume I.
