two more books on the Crusades

From a brief review in World...

Rodney Stark's God's Battalions: The Case for the Crusades puts into perspective medieval Europe's counterattack against Islam. A longer book also from a secular publishing house, Jonathan Phillips' Holy Warriors happily continues to reverse recent tendencies to curse the crusaders.

I haven't read those yet, but have read this one.

As a result of this blog post, I bought the book by Rodney Stark -God's Batallions. It is a very interesting perspective on the Crusades that I had not heard previously.

Thanks for the recommendation, Eric.
