The High Crusade Quotes. “In celebration of this new edition, and of fifty years of grand adventure, I suggest we all pick up the book, turn to the first page, read until we laugh, then stick in a bookmark and go to the refrigerator for a beer.

  Perhaps the highest of the crusades that I know. Jihad is another that I’ve finished my first Poul Anderson book, The High Crusade, I can share a few thoughts.*Some medium-mild spoilers to follow.* First, allow me to point out that there are some other great reviews parsing different aspects of this story.   The Ejjai Invasion strikes at the height of the Fifth Spacer War. Humanity faces the most hyperviolent species ever unleashed. The doomsday clock is ticking. Naero Maeris spearheads the High Crusade to save humanity beside the dauntless, legendary Spacer Marines of Bravo Command. From world to world no quarter is given. The fate of all humanity hangs in the balance during: The High Crusade.

As I read The High Crusade, however, alien bureaucrats began to look a whole lot less scary. Of course this book is a rather self-indulgent medievalist daydream.
