The Knights Templar At War 1120-1312
by Paul Hill
- Global History
The Knights Templar played a key role during the Crusades, but we know little about the military operations in which this fabled medieval order fought. Paul Hill fills this gap with a richly illustrated look at how the Knights prosecuted their wars.
The order was founded as a response to attacks on pilgrims in the Holy Land, and for nearly 200 years fought in countless battles and sieges at the forefront of crusading warfare. Hill reveals how the Knights were funded, supplied, and organized, the strategies and tactics they employed, the structures of Templar leadership, and the nature of their castles and fortifications.
Here is a rare and absorbing look at a vital aspect of medieval warfare on the frontiers of Christendom.
