Dan Jones has narrated this enthralling history of the Templars, I thoroughly enjoyed the narrative and strained to stop listening...He has proven that the historical fact of the Templars is much more interesting than the fictional histories and conspiracies of recent times. I cannot recommend it highly enough!

Listened to this everyday on my commute and in spare time it was so engrossing. The story contained a lot of French titles that would be to difficult to remember but the main leading players stick in my mind. I didn't know much about this group of religious warrior's and was suprised to learn that the order originated in france also was amazed to find out how few their numbers were. The bravery shown by the Knights was incredible fighting overwhelming odds and on suicide missions so to speak they were remarkable it was no wonder they were feared by their opponents and respected. The story of their organization and businesses acumen was also a revelation. Their engineered downfall by the king of france and the spineless pope as well as the greed of those involved in basically framing them to get the orders money was facinating to learn.
The narrator was Excellent and made listening a delight.
The story also gave insights to other areas of medieval life and how the order was the birthplace of international banking.

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 (:
A factual historical account telling the story of the Templars warts and all. Brilliant account.
