    One thought on “The Children's Crusade: Medieval History, Modern Mythistory

    1. Meaghan on said:

      This is not popular history and I wouldn t recommend it to non academic types, but I found it very interesting I hadn t realized that so little is known about the Children s Crusade everything I thought I knew has never been verified and may very well be made up The author is an excellent historiographer and myth buster.

    2. Becky on said:

      Reading other reviews I thought this would be a harder read While it wasn t easy it was not difficult And even though the author crushed all the myths of the Children s Crusade and made me sad I still liked it History trumps myth
