Today we go back nearly 1000 years to the First Crusade for History's Most Unlikely Victory. How did a ragtag, multinational army of Western knights, nobles and peasants reconquer much of Asia Minor and the Holy Land against a numerically superior enemy, without clear leadership or planning, in the face of crippling supply and desertion issues and despite a multitude of setbacks and disasters. This episode tells the ultimate story of a victory against all odds.
