From Knights to Nazis
What is a “secret society?” Author and filmmaker Philip Gardiner uses a plethora of facts and music to explore and explain the beginnings of secret societies. The rites and rituals performed and revered by such groups as Knights Templar, Nazis, Freemasons, and even one of the first secret societies, Christianity are looked at from a historical and contemporary perspective. Very interesting stuff!
Don't Waste Your Time or Money
The final season of X-Files contained more verifiable facts than this book. It's full of unfounded conjecture. If you are a conspiracy theorist you will like it. If you are interested in facts you will want your money back.
I found this to be interesting, informative, & entertaining. He covers a lot of different secret societies, & he makes you think! The world of fiction is not far from fact...
