Don't get the First crusade, so shite i can't remember the writer!
I am actually going to buy Cry, the Beloved Country now.
I loved that book
TT - history, rather than novel? Is it this one?
Not that I've read it - I thought I'd just check so I know what to avoid.
'Persian Fire' was another excellent history book I've read recently - lent it to an ex-forumite and haven't seen it since...
IronMin - I'm generally with you on the film v. book debate, although I really enjoy the Lord of the Rings films.
The relatively recent 'Count of Monte Cristo' must rank as my least favourite adaptation of a book I liked.
Thats the one.
Dull is not the word. I expected fighting, shagging and something on technology. Instead about history between all the head crusaders and how they where sometimes lucky othertimes just killed!
Ah well, it reminds me a lot of Gladiator so if that's up your street I can recommend it!
Gladiator was good fun.
DM - I know enough about WW2 to know that Ben Affleck did not win the Battle of Britain.
