NEON by Laluma
In 1977 a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune, dissecting popular culture and extracting the historical DNA to produce a podcast like you've never heard before. If you need a podcast, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire ... the N-Team. Presented by Jem Duducu Produced by Dan Morelle.

‘In Deus Vult, this is the true beginning of The Crusades. The two hundred page book presents a ‘concise history’ of a fascinating period in western history. From start to finish, Deus Vult is a riveting read. Where the book really comes alive is in the storytelling.’ The History Vault online, 15th January 2015 by Rebecca Rideal
‘A light-hearted roundup that swiftly covers a lot of ground.’ History of War, January 2015
‘A concise history of the Crusades is as an ambitious a venture as the 1st Crusade itself. Doing it in 223 pages is shooting for the moon. Nevertheless the author is undaunted and daintily skips over the first 1,000 years of history from the birth of Christ to Pope Urban’s preaching campaign in 1095 with barely a pause and goes on dealing with roughly one Crusade per chapter. I feel sure many Crusade enthusiasts will enjoy this fast and light read, that gallops through this complex subject with the nimbleness of a Saracen horse archer, an achievement the author should be proud of.’ Adventures In The Land of History blog – (https://adventuresinhistoryland.wordpress.com/2015/03/16/book-review-deus-vult-by-jem-duducu), 16th March 2015
