This is a good book on the history of the Templars. While not comprehensive, it does a good job of providing an overview of the order and their actions during the Crusades. I found it informative for someone who had not read more comprehensive books on the subject ( )

2525 The Knights Templar, by Stephen Howarth (read 1 Aug 1993) This book is a "popular" account of the order, and not very profound. I found little new in its account of the Crusades, but the couple of chapters on Philip the Fair's destruction of the order was informative, as was the one on the structure of the order. Clearly the Templars were not guilty, but the forced confessions may have misled the Church authorities. It is a sad story. ( )
