I bought this title to see what the "professional" writers and publishers were putting before AS history students. The book is full of Anti-Christian cliches after the fashion of Ridley Scott's Kingdom of Heaven. Reynald de Chatillon is presented as "the most murderous and psychotic crusader" ever page 113. The author seems blithely unaware of the more nuanced views of Bernard Hamilton, whose book "The Leper King" is easily accessible to the average student. The author should stay with writing fiction. As for the publisher ! They cannot even type-set ! On page 5 the Box for source A omits the name of the knight taking the oath to the Count of Flanders. Page 15 has the image of Alexius Comnenus so badly placed that the name of the Pope to whom he appeals is missing. Pearson have all the technology in the world and no place to go.

Yet another winner from this well qualified historian passionate about his subject and imbued with the desire to share and encourage his readers to become equally as engrossed.
This latest in a series of related publications is well researched and compiled in a manner to make reading of it a real pleasure.
Highly recommended

As of September 2014, OCR no longer do this course! Nevertheless, it is a great way to develop writing skills, and the subject itself is fascinating. AQA do a course to this at the moment as well, so this could be a good resource
