The First Crusade was a watershed moment in both Islamic and Christian history – influencing history across Africa, Europe, and Asia for centuries to come. This is the story. It’s all here and it’s all for free on Battlecast – the world’s foremost podcast on war and it’s sociopolitical impact.
I also want to give a shout out to Eric and everybody listening at Camp Arifjan in Kuwait. I know it’s hot out there. We’ll keep the beers on ice for you.
