The second edition of this standard introduction to the Crusades has been extensively rewritten to take account of the latest research and interpretations. Mayer covers all the expeditions which took place between the First Crusade in 1096 and the final retreat from Palestine in 1291, touching on a wide range of issues, from the impact of the Crusades on the history of participating states to the political entanglements it instigated between the Pope and emperors.
Mayer's treatment of the Crusades is outstanding. His examination of Europe's forays into the Levant between 1095 - 1291 shows the complex inter-relationship and on-again, off-again cooperation between various secular authorities, and the political competition between state and church. To my suprise, he also draws attention to the political turmoil within the Muslim states between 1095 - 1192 that was an accidental boon to the Crusading Europeans.

The majority of the book is concerned with the first three crusades (1096 - 1192) - the climate in which they were called, the goals and aims of the Church, the internal strife between various kings, princes and other aristocrats, the emergence of Crusading orders (the Templars, Hospitaliers and Teutons) and the "crusading states" the were established in the interm between waves of arriving religious warriors. The attention to deail is exquisite - the real strength of the book is the way in which Mayer puts the crusades in context with the myriad of forces at play, especially between the Pope and various secular authorities, and how this competition was exacerbated with the presence of crusader states in the eastern mediterranean. The last quarter of the book "skims" over the fourth and following crusades (although his discussion of competing theories of the foruth crusade: was it an accident or underhanded real politik that led to the sacking of Constantinople in 1204 and his treatment of the "children's crusade" made for fascinating reading), concluding with the arrival of the Mongols. The concluding chapters really read as if they were "phoned in" compared to his writing of the earlier crusades.

Having not read the original German, I can't comment on the quality of the translation, other than to say it reads clearly, albiet the scholarship may be a bit dated (the first German edition was published in 1965, the second edition which I read was published in 1990. Compared to Runciman A History of The Crusades, 3 Volume Set: The First Crusade, The Kingdom of Jerusalem, The Kingdom of Acre (Deluxe Folio Society Issue), I liked this better if only because Runciman is painfully detailed, making it difficult for all but the specialist to get lost in the forest for the trees. For those seeking a solid, well-written and thorough history of the early (first three) crusades, this would be my recommendation.
I try to read it but it was really boring and ever really finish the book at all
