Nazi Gold is the real-life story of the theft of a fabulous treasure—the German national gold and foreign currency reserves, which disappeared in transit following the collapse of the Nazi regime in 1945. The authors' quest led them to a murky, dangerous, post-war world of racketeering, corruption, and gang warfare. Their reporting, matching eyewitness testimony with recently declassified Top Secret documents from the US Archives, lays bare this monumental crime in a narrative which throngs with SS desperadoes, a redheaded queen of crime, American military governors living like kings, and investigators impeded at every step and in fear of their lives. This fully updated edition of Nazi Gold includes startling evidence that throws further light on the crime, including the authors' recent discovery of some of the missing treasure in the Bank of England.

About the Author:

Ian Sayer is a transport executive and one-time truck driver and insurance clerk. His interest in Nazi gold was first aroused by the Guinness Book of Records' account of the greatest robbery of all time. He began his extensive search for this book back in 1974. Douglas Botting is a writer whose previous books reflect his interest in travel, exploration and twentieth century war. These include Aftermath in Europe, In the Ruins of the Reich and Gavin Maxwell: A Life.

Review:

"Reads like the sleazy world described in Graham Greene's Third Man with several noughts added to the transactions" * Daily Express * "A major feat of detection . . . a remarkable story . . . the murky post-war world of racketeering and corruption . . . it is all here . . . they have solved the mystery as far as anyone could solve it" * Birmingham Post * "A riveting thriller-style account of what happened to the Nazi gold hoard" * The Guardian *

Book Description Transworld Publishers Ltd, United Kingdom, 2003. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. In 1945, as Allied bombers continued their final pounding of Berlin, the panicking Nazis began moving the assets of the Reichsbank south for safekeeping. Vast trainloads of gold and currency were evacuated from the doomed capital of Hitler's 'Thousand-year Reich'. Nazi Gold is the real-life story of the theft of that fabulous treasure - worth some 2,500,000,000 at the time of the original investigation. It is also the story of a mystery and attempted whitewash in an American scandal that pre-dated Watergate by nearly 30 years. Investigators were impeded at every step as they struggled to uncover the truth and were left fearing for their lives. The authors' quest led them to a murky, dangerous post-war world of racketeering, corruption and gang warfare. Their brilliant reporting, matching eyewitness testimony with declassified Top Secret documents from the US Archives, lays bare this monumental crime in a narrative which throngs with SS desperadoes, a red-headed queen of crime and American military governors living like Kings. Also revealed is the authors' discovery of some of the missing treasure in the Bank of England. Seller Inventory # AAZ9781840187854
