Reviews - What do customers think about The Knights Templars: God's Warriors, the Devils's Bankers?
nothing really stood out Mar 2, 2010
The Knights Templars by Frank Aneloo is an overview of how the knights Templar functioned and how they recruited their members and performed their deeds. Overall I found the book to lack something. The one big thing and this may come from Sanello being a journalist and not a historian is the lack of citations throughout the book and although there is a bibliography in the back I don't get a sense for what plugs in where to read more. I have no way to evaluate his opinions or conclusions being I do not specialize in this area at all but I found the book to jump around quite a bit and not focus in on a specific area. Perhaps those with a greater background in this area can offer more on how his book fits in to the ongoing debate but I feel I learned very little from this and I have almost no idea where to go for more information due to the way it is organized.
