Review

Midwest Book Review"The Teutonic Knights: A Military History is the true story of the Christian order of Teutonic Knights of central Europe during the medieval era. Covering roughly the 1200's through the 1500's, including the order's rise and fall, The Teutonic Knights examines both the order's strengths and its inequities, which have been to some degree exaggerated by propagandist, nationalists, secularists, and Protestants. A handful of black-and-white photographic plates illustrate this meticulously documented historical text, embellished with a bibliography and index. The Teutonic Knights brings the era and daily life alive, as surely as it illuminates power struggles between factions, Christian orders, noblemen, and nations, and is a superb contribution to medieval and military history shelves.""Journal of Military History", October 2006"The Teutonic Knights played an exceptionally important role in the history of the crusading movement and in the political, economic, and cultural development of northeastern Europe. Nevertheless, they have received very little attention in Anglophone scholarship, especially when compared to the Templars and Hospitallers, the contemporaries and rivals of the German Order. William Urban, who has published widely on the Baltic crusades over the past four decades, has essayed to redress this imbalance in the literature with a military history of the Teutonic Knights from their foundation in the late twelfth century until the dissolution of their independent state in the sixteenth. Urban's thorough knowledge of the relevant source materials as well as his familiarity with the scholarship that has been published in a wide range of modern languages, make him uniquely qualified to take on this task."

About the Author

William Urban is the Lee L. Morgan Professor of History at Monmouth College, Illinois. He specialises in medieval Baltic history and is the author of numerous works in this field, including Tannenberg and After, The Prussian Crusade and The Baltic Crusade. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
