First Crusade:
My professor assign us to do an essay and he gave us two statements that we have to argue in both the pros and cons of the first crusade focusing on what happened and what did the crusades did to the jewish, hungarians, greeks and arabs. The two statements are:

1- Crusades was a military expansion of Europe.
2- crusade were a disruption of culture.

my professor only gave us the the following books that we can use to do this essay: 1- Holy war, the crusades and their impact on todays world. By: KAREN ARMSTRONG 2- The global experience. By: Philip F. Riley

3-Arab historians of the crusades. By Francesco Gabrieli.

At the end of the whole essay put a conclusion stating why you liked or did not like one of the three authors. What do you learn, like and don't like about the first crusade.

PLEASE DO NOT USE WIKIPEDIA FOR THIS ESSAY OR WEB PAGES SIMILAR TO THIS ONE BECAUSE MY PROFESSOR SPECIFIED THAT WE COULD ONLY LOOK UP ON THE BOOKS THAT I MENTIONED BEFORE. HE WILL NOTICE IF SOMETHING IS NOT RIGHT OR DOES NOT MAKE ANY SENCE.

Karen Armstrong.Holy war, the crusades and their impact on today’s world. London:Constable & Robinson, 1980.  2. Philip F.Riley.The global experience.Cambridge, 1991.

3. Francesco Gabrieli.Arab historians of the crusades. New York: Routledge1998. I'm really sorry for this inconvenience but my professor is very strict with this and i have to turn in what he asks me for. also please read again the indications because you did not uses well the 2 statements . you had to do pros and cons of each statement focusing on the jewish, hungarians, greeks and arabs. also you have to choose one of the writer and write about if you liked or disliked one of those writers and why. sorry for this inconvenience but my

The First Crusade (1096–1099) was a military expedition by Western Christianity to regain the Holy Lands taken in the Muslim conquest of the Levant, ultimately resulting in the recapture of Jerusalem. It was launched on 27 November 1095 by Pope Urban II with the primary goal of responding to an appeal from Byzantine Emperor Alexios I Komnenos, who requested that western volunteers come to his aid and help to repel the invading Seljuq Turks from Anatolia. An additional goal soon became the principal objective—the Christian reconquest of the sacred city of Jerusalem and the Holy Land and the freeing of the Eastern Christians from Islamic rule. During the crusade, knights and peasants from many nations of Western Europe travelled over land and by sea, first to Constantinople and then on towards Jerusalem, as crusaders; the peasants greatly outnumbered the knights. Peasants and knights were split into separate armies; however, because the peasants were not as well-trained in combat as the knights, their army failed to reach Jerusalem. The knights arrived at Jerusalem, launched an assault on the city, and captured it in July 1099, massacring many of the city's Muslim and Jewishinhabitants. They also established the crusader states of the Kingdom of Jerusalem, the County of Tripoli, the Principality of Antioch, and theCounty of...
