Product Description

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)

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.

Format: Paperback
This book details the story of Germany's gold, foreign currency and art treasures to the South of the country during the last few weeks of the war.

Reading it, I'm surprised most of the gold and currency actually got there given the 'sticky fingers' of not just Germans and civilians, but the American Army who seem to have helped themselves as well. Senior SS officers also appear to be regular looters, given their need for portable wealth escaping ahead of the hangman.

Also covers the role of Switzerland in their (well documented elsewhere) willing role as conduits for looted gold and other art treasures from their unfortunate owners.

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Peter Buckley VINE VOICE on 3 Jan 2010
Format: Paperback
This is an awe inspiring book, not simply for the time and effort that went into researching it. Twenty-two pages of close-typed sources, plus an additional seven page bibliography give a small indication of the through contribution to the cause of truth contained herein. The writers have sifted fact from fiction to provide the answers to some interesting questions. What happened to the missing Nazi gold, millions of dollars worth of gold and currency, moved from Berlin to Bavaria in the closing days of the war? Who were the men involved, German, American, British, and others? Why the secrecy over official involvement by the post-war military government in Southern Germany? Was it corruption, incompetence, or both?
It would be wrong to deny the huge contribution of Americans in the defeat of the Nazi menace, however, the evidence shows that a minority were actively enriching themselves with the `spoils of war' with a spirit in contrast with German officers like Pfeiffer, entrusted with the gold. This is a complex tale convincingly told, truth is stranger than fiction.
The compelling chronological account of events, with pen-portraits of the main characters, honourable and not so honourable, sets this book above others.
It is clear that for some, time and the death of any witnesses, aided by the judicious shredding of any investigative documentation, is still welcome. I concur with Stuart Eizenstat, who in advocating openness stated, `No one can rectify the mistakes of the past, but we can make a greater effort'.

An extremely interesting book on a topic little mentioned today. The relevance of this subject matter is plain for the reader; a recommended read.
