    This book is very easy to read and well thought out Mr Napier expertly introduces you to the myriad of influences on both sides of the Crusades from the call of the First Crusade to the fall of Acre Finally he takes the reader through the events that led up to and after the arrests and imprisonment of the Templars in 1307 Perhaps the greatest things the author brings to this book is his own obviously extensive research and also what must be a keen interest Although the topics can be overwhelming he takes his time to ensure that the reader has a firm grasp of concepts A great addition for anyone from history buffs to acomplished scholarsThe book holds such a wonderful blend of simplicity yet substance two BIG thumbs up

    I recommend this book to anyone who wants to know about the Templar's as it is full of interesting facts presented in a way that makes it an enjoyable read as well explains what happens and why rather than assuming you already know key events so its not a heavy read

    An excellent read Having heard them mentioned in 'The Da Vinci Code' film and book and having visited temple church in London I was fascinated to learn a little about them This book is heavily laced with names and dates and direct extracts from writings of the time It lays open several possibilities for their demise without the author ever really needing to force his own opinion on you It's certainly left me wanting to know about them

    I always hated history as a kid so i have a lot of catching up to do I have been led on a journey that i thought would take a couple of years to complete From Virgil and Homer to Dante and modern works from Baigent Anthony Beevor and William L Shirer This journey will never end all the while there are books like The Rise and Fall of the Knights Templar Some history books are heavily laced with personal opinion than others This book seems to deal with the facts as far as my cross referencing shows which if i'm honest could have gone alot further But it has tempted me in to reading alot on the subject and that cannot be a bad thing
