Condition Brand New

The military religious orders emerged during the Crusades as Christendom's stormtroopers in the savage conflict with Islam. Some of them still exist today, devoted to charitable works. The Monks of War is the first general history of these orders to have appeared since the eighteenth century. The Templars, the Hospitallers (later Knights of Malta), the Teutonic Knights, and the Knights of the Spanish and Portuguese orders were 'noblemen vowed to poverty, chastity and obedience, living a monastic life in convents which were at the same time barracks, waging war on the enemies of the Cross'. The first properly disciplined Western troops since Roman times, they played a major role in defending the crusader kingdom of Jerusalem, in the 'Baltic Crusades' which created Prussia, in the long reconquest of Spain from the Moors, and in fighting the 'Infidel' right up to Napoleonic times. This celebrated book tells the whole enthralling story, recreating such epics as the sieges of Rhodes and Malta and the destruction of the Templars by the Inquisition. Acclaimed on publication, it has now been revised and updated, with a concluding chapter to take events into the 1990s.

Publisher Description

In the 12th century the military religious orders were formed. Courageous, formidably organised, often savagely brutal, their task was to defend the Holy Land from the infidel. This is their violent and colourful story - of the desperate defence of Rhodes under siege by the turks; the grisly exchange of mutilated corpses at malta; the terrible persecution of the templars, accused by the inquisition of blasphemy and "unnatural vice". Originally published in 1972, the book bought together the histories of the Knights Templar, the Hospitallers, the Teutonic knights and the lesser-known orders. The text has been revised by the author for this new edition.

Author Biography
