The Crusades Trilogy


Having received the three books of this trilogy [The road to Jerusalem; The Templar knight & Birth of the Kingdom]  for my birthday I have been reading them over the last 2 months.

A good read and much better than the film ‘Arn’. Good background to 12/13th century Sweden and the conflicts around it as well as a good look at som eof the issues within the Christian enclave in the Holy land.

The last book has left me inspired to paint up a Swedish army of the period with Arn as one of its generals.

Well worth a read and other than a few liberties with history which aren’t to much of a issue very good information on the period.
