Lately, I’ve been addicted to the documentaries made by this person called Pete jelly. I wonder if anyone else regularly watches his documentaries. What are your thoughts on it ?

I learned to look at history from a entirely different viewpoint. For example, the crusades have been described to me as a Muslim vs Christian war. But after watching this channel and deciphering the proof from a unbiased viewpoint it seems to have been a war between nomadic pastoralists who recently converted to Islam during the Abbasid caliphate and the civilized empires like the Fatimids, Byzantine, and Holy Roman Empire.

I like it for some things. Is basically an audiobook.

I like Real Crusades History, and Kings and Generals.

All their voices are so dramatic, except maybe for RCH. Is just some guy sitting on his computer desk talking into a camera.
