Check out his channel (and blog). He's an amazing resource for the history of the Crusades, not just the ones in the Holy Land, but the Reconquista in Iberia, and the Northern Crusades as well. Plus he has all sorts of short videos dealing with life in the period.

Its easy to see why one would not give any credit for the gains of civilization to the Christian west if people only give it a superficial look, because history has been rewritten for the past two centuries to downplay or completely suppress the role of Christianity and it’s influence on western civilization.  To credit western civilization with being further advanced would be to acknowledge the positive contributions of Christianity on all aspects of life, from the rule of law to the institutions of education and medicine, etc. That just does not fit the narrative.
"Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?" On hearing this, Jesus said, "It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. But go and learn what this means: 'I desire mercy, not sacrifice.' For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners."  Matthew 9:10-14
