The Crusades Crescent and the Cross (6 November 2005) [DVDrip (Xvid)] (DW Staff Approved)
History Channel - THE CRUSADES: CRESCENT AND THE CROSS presents the epic battle between two Middle Age superpowers, the Christian Crusaders and the Muslims. Fought over two centuries, the conflict decided the fate of the Holy Lands of the Middle East, a tiny strip of land only a few hundred miles long, but containing the ultimate prize - the city of Jerusalem.
This documentary tells the story of the key personalities of the First, Second, and Third Crusades - popes, kings, sultans and knights who, in the name of God, ruthlessly fought for land and power. Experience the murder, treachery and bloodshed of this legendary chapter of history through the eyes of key historical figures such as Richard the Lionheart and Saladin, King Louis VII and Nur al-Din .
With breathtaking CGI-enhanced visuals, heart-pounding re-enactments, and stunning footage from rarely seen locations, CRUSADES: CRESCENT AND THE CROSS brings the first three Crusades alive, offering fresh insight for a new generation in conflict.
