The High Crusade

Review by Mark L. Olson

The High Crusade

by Poul Anderson

McFadden Books, 1964, 160 pp, $0.60

The High Crusade is a joy to re-read – it’s always been one of my favorite books and it has to be one of the all-time classics of SF.

The amazing thing is that this short book so carries you on as you read it that it seems plausible that a couple thousand medieval Englishmen might conquer a stellar empire. That’s really first-rate story-telling!

Highly recommended – but you’ve already read it, haven’t you?
