Welcome to lecture two of the series A Very Brief History of the Crusades, 1095-1291!
This episode is taught by Dr. Andrew Latham and he carefully, quickly and thoroughly guides us through the Crusades in the Holy Land. He guides us through the various phases of the crusades and the back and forth struggle for control of the Holy Land. What I also enjoyed was the framing foundation he sets for these conflicts.
From complications, to overviews, failures and success, we are taken on a series of conflicts that would forever shape the world that we have today.
