The Templars by Dan Jones

The Knights Templar were the wealthiest, most powerful – and most secretive – of the military orders that flourished in the crusading era.

Their story – encompassing as it does the greatest international conflict of the Middle Ages, a network of international finance, a swift rise in wealth and influence followed by a bloody and humiliating fall – has left a comet’s tail of mystery that continues to fascinate and inspire historians, novelists and conspiracy theorists.

Peer & Press Reviews

A fresh, muscular and compelling history of the ultimate military-religious crusading order, combining sensible scholarship with narrative swagger, featuring a cast of exuberantly monstrous sword-swingers spattering Christian and Islamic blood from Spain to Jerusalem.

Simon Sebag Montefiore, author of Jerusalem: The Biography

Fast-paced narrative history depicted with irresistible verve, bloody battle scenes and moments of laugh-out-loud wit…  This is another triumphant tale from a historian who writes as addictively as any page-turning novelist.

Observer

The story of the Templars, the ultimate holy warriors, is an extraordinary saga of fanaticism, bravery, treachery and betrayal, and in Dan Jones they have a worthy chronicler.  The Templars is a wonderful book!

Bernard Cornwall, author of The Last Kingdom
