Bestselling author of The Plantagenets, historian, award-winning journalist and TV presenter Dan Jones shares his inimitably vivid and authoritative  study of the wealthiest, most powerful – and most secretive – of the military orders that flourished in the crusading era; The Templars.

The Knights Templar were the wealthiest, most powerful – and most secretive – of the military orders that flourished in the crusading era. Their story is a blistering journey through bitter conflict in the Middle East, a study of unrestrained financial power and a shocking lesson in the dangers of propaganda and political envy, which builds to an unforgettable end.  Small wonder that the Templars have fascinated and inspired historians, novelists and conspiracy theorists from their own times until the present day.
