- In 1202 Christian armies from Europe set out on the 4th Crusade to liberate the Holy Land. Two years later they sacked Constantinople, the greatest city in the Christian world. This was 'the Crusade that went wrong', a shocking story of high stakes power politics and barbarism cloaked in religious zeal.
