New book

Templar fans will be interested to know about Jochen Schenk’s new book on the families who supported the order of the Temple in France. It’s due out at the end of March 2012. See it on Amazon.co.uk at:

and on amazon.com at:

But the main attraction for re-enactors will be the cover picture, which shows a medieval illustration of a Templar sergeant, in genuine Templar sergeant clothing! Note the brown tunic with black mantle, the red cross on the left breast, and the soft cap. Perfect!
