Reading "God's War"

At the moment I am reading "God's War" by Christopher Tyerman. Its heavy going as the book is basically (an understatement really) a history of the Crusades - all of them! Not just those to Jerusalem, but literally all of them.

I have finished with the First through to Fourth Crusades, and have begun on the Albingensian Crusade.

Word of caution - if you know nothing of the Crusades - don't read this first! I pride myself in knowing something of this subject, but even I am finding the book (over 1000 pages) to be a rather weighty tome. But continue on I shall and will render my verdict sometime in the not too distant future.
