Description
From Paris to Stalingrad, the Nazis systematically plundered all manner of art and antiquities. But the first and most valuable treasure they looted were the Crown Jewels of the Holy Roman Empire. This is the true-life Indiana Jones story of a college professor turned Army sleuth who foils a Nazi plot to preserve these cherished symbols of Hitler's Thousand Year Reich. Author Sidney Kirkpatrick draws on recently discovered and previously unpublished documents, including interrogation and intelligence reports, diaries and correspondence, as well as on interviews with all remaining living participants involved with the case, to re-create this thrilling true-life story.
Reviews
"A vivid true-crime narrative about a post-World War II investigation meant to prevent Nazis still at large from using several venerable medieval artifacts to reconstitute the Reich. . . . Fast-moving and intriguing, in the vein of Raiders of the Lost Ark." - Kirkus Reviews"
