Publisher's Summary

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.
Unabridged edition read by Dan Jones.

Critic Reviews

"A pacy narrative history of the medieval order laced with tales of blood and bravery." ( The Sunday Times)
"This is a fascinating story of fanaticism...Jones is certainly an entertainer, but also a fine historian who knows how to render serious scholarship into accessible prose. Seldom does one find serious history that is so easy to read." ( The Times)
"Snappy, well-paced…. The author’s ambition, he says, is to tell the story of the Templars in a straightforward way and 'to write a book that will entertain as well as inform'. He has done precisely that." ( The Daily Telegraph)

Wonderful book

Great book kept me interested and learned a lot. Great for those who don't always have time to read the physical book.

A very engaging account of the Templar's history.

I came to this book with some reservations ‘another Templar book!’ could it really bring anything new to the well-trodden temple genre?... well, yes it does, by sticking to extensive research and delivering a chronological account of all the Templar’s doings and derring-do over the course of the order’s existence. Written and read in an engaging manner, I was really happy to continue through to the end, - Brilliant!

‘The Templars’, by Dan Jones

Wow!!!!!!! Enjoyed it very, very much. Kept listening for hours on end. Well written, well read. I learned so much about the fascinating Knights Templar. Being an avid history reader across many different genres I came across so many people and incidents previously encountered. The more I read the more knowledge gets ‘weaved’ into my ‘carpet of knowledge about the past. Having said that, this book can be enjoyed by someone without much previous knowledge of history as well! Recommend it highly (:

Thrilling read

I very much enjoyed this book having gone into it knowing very little about the Templars. I enjoyed the chronological telling of the Order's history as I feel that is the best way to learn about history.
