Paul Doherty - “The Templar”


Another historical novel and another one of quality. A trip on the first crusade called for by Pope Urban II in 1097. As chronicled by Eleanor de Paynes this draws on a large number of contemporary documents and forms a most realistic and horrific account of the hardships, treachery and bloodshed.

PAUL DOHERTY was born in Middlesbrough and studied history at Liverpool before doing a Doctorate at Oxford. He is now a headmaster in N E London and lives with his wife and family in Epping Forest. He has written dozens of historical novels but this is the first I have read.
