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)

Absolutely marvellous!

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!

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.
