This is the book to read regarding the disastrous Fourth Crusade. With dramatic sweep the author traces the expedition from its inception to the pillage and destruction the Crusaders wrecked upon the Christian city of Constantinople. Other books dryly rely on sources, this very accurate book will actually take you there.
