We finally got the latest issue out. This summer we’re looking at The Crusades. 98 pages of Crusade history from the quirky feathered friends on Crusade to the impact on Byzantium.
We also look at the Mongol threat, and examine relations between Crusaders and Muslims in the Crusader States over the course of several centuries. On the weird and wacky side, we follow a goose on Crusade, and try to understand what that meant to people caught up in the fervour of the movement. Lastly, we examine a knightly legend more about an inner Crusade of faith, than a physical journey to battle.
There is a lot of great content but this goose is my favorite. LOOK AT HIM.
“I’M GOING ON CRUSADE!!!”
