Should you care to spend time listening to accounts of history's great sieges, Roger Crowley's audiobooks will transport you to Constantinople in 1453, Malta in 1565, and now Acre, the last Christian outpost in the Middle East, in 1291. Author and narrator are excellent, and the story of Christians, Muslims, and Mongols battling for supremacy at history's crossroads is thrilling, horrific, and tragic by turns. Narrator Matt Kugler will be a fresh voice to many listeners, and he delivers exactly what this story requires: a steady, assured pace and a moderating tone that maintains narrative distance from these bloody events while conveying in full force their spectacle and drama.
