About this book:
The order of the Temple was a military-religious organisation that was set up to protect pilgrims and settlers in the Holy Land. The Templars believed they were God's warriors fighting on God's behalf and developed a fearsome reputation among the neighbouring Muslim rulers. This book examines the men who joined the order and why they joined it, focusing on those who fought in the Holy Land. Based on contemporary sources it provides an effective insight into the daily lives of the warriors, from their admission ceremony to their training, organisation in the field, and how they fought in battle.
Helen Nicholson is Reader in history at Cardiff University. She has written extensively on the history of the military orders, the crusades in general and the Templars in particular.
Wayne Reynolds was born in Leeds, UK where he still lives and works, and attended art college in Middlesborough. He has had a life-long passion for illustration, and since 1991 has worked as a professional artist. Wayne has provided illustrations and source material for many gaming companies, creating figures, landscapes and interiors, as well as providing core characterisation. He is perhaps best known though for his work on titles such as '2000AD', 'Slaine', and 'Judge Dredd'. Wayne is also a keen modeller and historical re-enactor.
