I know you lot aren't illiterate fucks, so let's see what you're reading, give suggestions/ reccomendations and generally discuss the written word. Currently reading God's War by Christopher Tyreman. A history of the crusades, this goes deeply into the politics surrounding the great conflicts between Islam & Christianity in the Dark Ages and how the wars were fought (and more importantly why). Only just gotten to the end of the 1st Crusade and it's really gotten me. The politicking between various Lord's and vassals, the scheme's of both the Emperor of Constantinople & the Pope and even how the various conflicts helped shape warfare-it's bloody fascinating. Highly recomended.
