This author has the wrong title, for the Teutonic Knights, see pg. 207 Robinson John J. (1991) "Dungeon Fire and Sword" among many other sources. This order was purely military and took its rule from the Knights Templar, the original rule had over 148 line items of commandments. The Teutonic Knights were not a "hospital" but a war machine just like the Templars. The Lazarus order, the Hospitalers, were both, a hospice and war machine, let's get our facts straight.
