The Crusades

For thousands of years the holy lands of the Middle East have run with blood. Here the scars of battle fought between three of the great religions of the world are etched into the earth.

But the deepest wound was made by a war between Christians and Muslims, that began in the 11th century and fought for 200 years. At stake: A tiny strip of land just a few hundred miles long, but with the greatest prize, Jeruzalem. Now this holy war’s past is a legend, but there were those who saw it with their own eyes.

Great chronicles from two different worlds, Christian and Muslim, who wrote of great deeds, great battles, great warriors and men who would lay down their lives for their god. This was the collision of two great faiths, the clash between the crescent and the cross. This is a documentary about the crusades.

  1. Does anyone have book recommendations with this subject?

  2. What are you on about you philistines? It’s the voice of Terry Jones From the Python gang *slaps face*

  3. So, Let me see. We have 44 votes cast and an average score of 4.7 out of 10. Since I see so many people giving out about the narrators voice, I assume that’s where the negative marking came from. Therefore I’m guessing the documentary must actually be good. I think I’ll watch it.

  4. Im in New Zealand & the accent- voice or wateva is dam normal, not unusual or abnormal in anyway. Reading the sheeplike comments re. dislike of voice I find kinda… pathetic & abit embarrassing to see such weak-minded followers in the human race agreeing with pretty much bloody nonsense- get some originality, dare to be bloody different grow some balls, etc bloody etc- wow

  5. Thats the voice of David Anderson of MASS EFFECT

  6. i’m from Europe and i don’t have problems with the voice. What are you talking about.

  7. Huh? The voice just sounds like James Earl Jones to me. I don’t get what everyone finds so annoying about it… I’ve only listened to the first two minutes, but I don’t get what everyone else is talking about. Am I watching the same documentary?

  8. this movie shows that muslims have always been dogs
    Long live Israel

    • Your stupidity amazes me. I actually want to shout at you. CHRISTIANS invaded first CHRISTIANS killed civilians MUSLIMS defended against it. Muslims have lived in Palestine not Israel but Palestine for thousands of years. Arab Muslims and Arab Jews and Arab Christians lived together peacefully in PALESTINE. Until money loving idiotic pricks like you came along. After WWII you Zionist dick suckers came and ruined PALESTINE and turned it into the illegal terrorist state that is Israel. Under international law you Israelis are criminals. Israeli Jews are dogs. Long Live Palestine. So piis of and go suck a Zionists dick.

  9. Need’s another commentary track.

  10. That voice! It ruined the movie.

    • Keith David is the narrator. He has a wonderful voice, but the audio quality is lousy – that’s why it sounds bad.

  11. Agree re. the voice over, it was sooooooooo grating. It was worse than listening to nails dragged down a blackboard. Makes me wonder if the actor had tried to sound as annoying as possible.

  12. This may have been interesting but I could not stand to the commentary: the man’s voice is almost unlistenable … it’s so bad I stopped wathcing after 5 minutes.

    • who the fuck voted against that comment? The man’s voice is terrible .. really, really terrible. This may have been a good documentary but I don’t know has I had to stop watching because the freak who’s commentating.
