The Military Order of Teutonic Knights was one of the most famous Crusading Orders, on a par with the Templars and the Hospitallers.
Having originally focused their attention on the preservation of the Crusader States in the Middle East, the loss of their Middle Eastern enclaves in the 13th century prompted the Knights to undertake campaigns in the Baltic and against pagan Prussians, Orthodox Russians and their Christian Polish neighbours.
Packed with detailed illustrations and photographs, this title examines their fascinating military and religious order, bringing to life the appearance, beliefs and battle experiences of the Teutonic Knights.
