5.0 out of 5 stars Knights Templar by Charles Addison
The vivid way Addison writes this book makes it easy for the reader to visualise the world he's written about. Meticulously researched not only does he cover the rise and fall of the Templar's but the surrounding people, institutions and countries that were relevant to the time.

2.0 out of 5 stars History mixed with Fiction.
No, no, no,no!! There are better historical books about the Templars than this. Disappointed is not the word as I have read other books by the author and found them to be excellent but Mr. Addison dropped the ball on this one. Sorry.

I am curious about the Templars, and this book has satisfied much of my curiosity. The author sticks to the facts as much as possible, but discusses the myths surrounding this enigmatic Secret Society at the end of the book. A very good read, if you are interested in this fascinating period of history.

This review is from: The History of the Knights Templar (Kindle Edition)
Am enjoying reading the book but it's a gradual process rather than an avid read - mostly because I don't read Latin even though I can make out quite a bit of it. It's giving me a deeper insight into the part the Knights played and their acquired assets, lands, etc and I am keen to read the whole thing. Never ceased to be bemused by the effects that different religions have had throughout history, right up to the present time.

This review is from: The History of the Knights Templar (Kindle Edition)
This is an old history, much having been written recently having taken the shine potentially from this book. Remember that this was written a considerable tome ago and that information has come to light that questions its text. However its facination is not weakened.
