Overview

With more colorful characters and startling plot twists than the most dramatic of novels, John J. Robinson's Dungeon, Fire, and Sword immerses the reader in an historical era where the blood flows freely, tribal antagonisms run deep, and betrayal lurks around every corner. The time is the Crusades and the place is the Middle East, where a fearless band of monk-warriors called the Knights Templar have vowed to protect Christian pilgrims to the Holy Land. The story of their faith and courage - and the horrors of their ultimate betrayal - has resonated throughout history. A vivid and gripping account of that incredible time, Dungeon, Fire, and Sword is a brilliant work of narrative history.

Here are some features of the book:

  • Separates fact from the large amount of fiction that surrounds the Knights Templar.
  • Offers valuable insights into the people and politics of the Middle East that are strikingly relevant today.
  • Filled with famous figures such as Richard the Lionhearted, St. Francis of Assisi, St. Thomas Aquinas, Marco Polo, and Genghis Khan.
  • Explores the question of missing Templar treasure and whether a secret succession of underground grand masters exists to this day.

Editorial Reviews

The New York Times Book Review
Long on enthusiasm and colorful narrative... it is high adventure.
(Starred Review) Booklist
Robinson's account of one of the medieval world's most famous military orders serves as a reminder that history can be more enthralling than even the most imaginative fiction.
The Washington Times
Dungeon, Fire and Sword is a good book for all who enjoy a well-written, well-researched story of stupidity, greed, barbarity, unspeakable cruelty, deception, fraud, treachery and sanctimony... John J. Robinson has written a fascinating history of an incredible time.
