Pirates & the Lost Templar Fleet: The Secret Naval War Between the Knights Templar and the Vatican: The Secret Naval War Between the Knights Templars and the Vatican Reviews
This book takes a look at links between the timeline of the Fall of the Templars and the surgence of Piracy soon thereafter. It makes some pretty big leaps in logic, but the argument is very very sound. You will be intrigued by the data analysis.
While this book did have some interesting information, it's general composition and construction was poor. It didn't 'flow' from one topic to the next very well. The author went off on tangents that were irrelevant and distracted the reader, and other seemingly important facts were barely touched upon. Despite the title, I don't know what this book is supposed to be about; pirates, templars; discovering the new world? I really don't know. The very last paragraph sums up the subject of the book(I guess) and then the author degrades himself with an unprofessional, yet by now characteristic, goofy quote. I really cannot recommend this book to anyone except high schoolers.
Wee, in 1 mere 271 pages I went through 10,000 years of seafaring!! I learned so much that I knew nothing about. The graphics were large with very good detail.From Papua New Guinea,to Boston,Lake Champlain, and the Basque fishermen I crossed the Atlantic in rowboats,kayaks,and very simple rafts!!! I support Leif Eriksson and his accomplishments with long ships to Greenland;however this book opened the possibility of Irish monk sailing up and down North America almost 2000 years ago! Wow!! A very good read for history buffs....
This book is quite good. It offers different views on sea travel and piracy than are normally placed in the public's view. I think that the author could have added even more, to make things even more well rounded, but there is nothing that I can do about that. :)
Im not sure if it would fall under myth or not, but it was definitely interesting.
