Video clip for '1453'

This 24-minute video is a perfect companion piece to the summer reading that I assigned for my Euro students in 2009. The fall of Constantinople is a vital turning point in the history of the West, yet few understand why. Questions raised in this video might prompt a very interesting discussion of point of view or the rise of Islam's influence in Europe.
