Warriors and The Bankers
by Alan Butler & Stephen Dafoe
' In The Warriors and the Bankers, the
research and writing team of Alan Butler and Stephen Dafoe bring their
combined experiences to bear on the question asked for hundreds of years, What
became of the Knights Templar? Arrested in 1307, dissolved in 1312 and
executed by 1314, the Templars have been the subject of many theories
concerning their possible survival. This book examines these theories against
new evidence and information. Additionally the authors put forth, for the
first time, a completely NEW theory that has caught the ears, eyes and
attention of many readers.
The ultimate conclusion is that the Templars did survive, virtually intact and
that in a very direct sense, they may still be one of the most potent forces
at work in the world at the start of the new Millennium. The Warriors and the
Bankers is eminently readable and is intended for both the serious student of
Templarism or simply the interested observer.
REVIEWS OF THIS BOOK
Commander of St.George's #37 Schenectady, NY
"I just finished your book The Warriors and The Bankers. What an
intriguing concept about the formation of Switzerland. After reading this, I
must say that I agree with your conclusion, it makes perfect sense as to where
and how they escaped from Le Bel."
Tracy R. Twyman Editor Dagobert's Revenge Magazine
" This most recent piece of galvanic scholarship cuts through the
muck of cloudy suppositions to reveal an entirely new way of looking at a most
mysterious and influential fraternal order. Got a handkerchief? Keep it handy.
You'll need it to wipe up the bits of your preconceived notions, which will be
thoroughly blown apart."

After reading 'The Warriors and the Bankers' by
Mr. Dafoe and Mr. Butler, and talking via internet with Mr. Dafoe himself, I
must say that their research is professionally put together and scientifically
placed. While generally not fully provable (how many Templar theories are???),
this book definitely 'hits the nail on the head' as to a possible path of
Templar development after the infamous Friday the 13th arrests. This book is a
must read for any student of Templar History, Freemason, or general historical
