Just received my Amazon order today. "The Rise and Fall of the Knights Templar" was amongst the books I ordered. Funny how history books just love the whole "Rise and Fall Of..." thing when it comes to titles. In addition to this latest acquisition, I have personally read:

The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich
The Rise and Fall of the British Empire
The Rise and Fall of the Great Powers

and no doubt there are many, many more. This is not a series of books. All of them are by different authors and published by different publishing houses. But of course there's no denying the fact that a lot of things have risen and fallen in the course of history.
