If you know little about the crusades, this is a good place to begin. Much of the book reads as though it is a novel but it is historically referenced and sequential. When you arrive at the end of the "biography" it is apparent that neither side is to be favored in the long view--it is simply a presentation of the human tragedy of military/cultural war and its victims. Still, it is a colorful and engaging experience for the reader.
