Book Description

1 April 2007 Earth Chronicles (Book 3)
The Earth Chronicles series, in six voumes, deals with the history and prehistory of Earth and humankind. Each book in the series, based upon information written on clay tablets by the ancient civilizations of the Near East, records the fantastic and real battles that occurred between the original creator gods over control of planet Earth. Asserting the premise that mythology is not fanciful but the repository of ancient memories, The Earth Chronicles series suggests that the Bible ought to be read literally as a historic/scientific document, and that ancient civilizations--older and greater than assumed--were the product of knowledge brought to Earth by the Anunnaki, "Those Who from Heaven to Earth Came." The 12th Planet, the first book of the series, presents ancient evidence for the existence of an additional planet in the Solar System: the home planet of the Anunnaki. In confirmation of this evidence, recent data from unmanned spacecraft has led astronomers to actively search for what is being called "Planet X.

About the Author

Zecharia Sitchin (1920-2010), an eminent Orientalist and biblical scholar, was born in Russia and grew up in Palestine, where he acquired a profound knowledge of modern and ancient Hebrew, other Semitic and European languages, the Old Testament, and the history and archaeology of the Near East. A graduate of the University of London with a degree in economic history, he worked as a journalist and editor in Israel for many years prior to undertaking his life's work--The Earth Chronicles. One of the few scholars able to read the clay tablets and interpret ancient Sumerian and Akkadian, Sitchin based The Earth Chronicles series on the texts and pictorial evidence recorded by the ancient civilizations of the Near East. His books have been widely translated, reprinted in paperback editions, converted to Braille for the blind, and featured on radio and television programs. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fascinating new perspective on ancient warfare 20 Jan 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This third entry in the Earth Chronicles series contains some of Sitchin's most interesting theories as to the history of mankind. Building upon his reconstruction of ancient history as espoused in the previous two books, the author now sets out to describe the evolution on warfare on earth. First, he restates his earlier theories which, in a nutshell, is that the Anunnaki, inhabitants of a 10th planet now on the far side of our sun, came to earth millennia ago and eventually created modern man by means of genetic manipulation. These "gods" were anything but divine, constantly fighting amongst themselves for power and prestige. Inevitably, the warring gods turned to man as new instruments of warfare against their enemies. Men such as Sargon the Great were granted kingship in Mesopotamia and surrounding areas and encouraged to wage war on whomever their gods commanded them to fight. With gods often fighting alongside men, brandishing powerful weapons of destruction, warfare became a common, increasingly destructive way of life.
Sitchin presents some eye-raising theories in these pages which bear mentioning. First, he virtually rewrites the history of the pyramids of Giza in terms of the construction and usage of the monuments, the sentence of a god to imprisonment in the Great Pyramid, and new thoughts on the real purposes behind the baffling shafts, rooms, and plugs found therein. Part of Sitchin's argument about the creation of the pyramids revolves around mathematics, and this part of the book does temporarily bog the reader down a bit.

5.0 out of 5 stars A SUPER READ FOR THOSE WITH OPEN MINDS 12 Feb 1999
By A Customer
Like ALL of his books, this one too is amazing, compelling, persuasive, enlightening, builds rationally and logically to each of its points BUT (there's alway a "but")is a bit difficult to read. Also, as with ALL his books, Zecharia draws his concise conclusions by bringing the knowledge of many sciences together. It is a must read for anyone with an open mind and thirst for knowledge.
I suggest the Earth Chronicles be read in their order of publication: 12th Planet, Stairway to Heaven, Wars of Gods & Men, Lost Realms,When Time Began.

Format:Mass Market Paperback
Sitchin brings myth and reality into synchrony in this exciting and credible history of Old Testament times. You'll never again accept the hogwash that the Giza pyramids were the burial places of (or even built by!) Egyptian pharoahs. And his explanation of the demise of Sumer sheds a bright light on the origins of the Hebrews and other biblical tales. Wide-ranging and meticulously documented, like all the "Earth Chronicles". Sitchin is able to combine brilliant and thoroughly supported scholarship with a story-teller's grace and timing, while resisting the temptation to embellish the truth as he sees it. I recommend you read the "Twelfth Planet" and "Stairway to Heaven" first.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book 8 Feb 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Although I must admit that Zecharia Sitchin has lost a lot of credibility in the last few years with his last two books "The Cosmic Code" and that other one about the emissaries of the gods, this book still offers a valid theory about our origins and the forgotten history about mankind. He brings forth evidence that has been dismissed as pure myth by the experts and sheds new light on ancient ageless mysteries. Please note that these other "experts" have never even once debated with Sitchin, except perhaps about those two last books of his. The Wars of Gods and Men truly is his best books, and it will truly show you the origins of Giza, Baalbek, Jerusalem and other mysterious sites.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of the Sitchin's Earth Chronicles Series 26 Sep 1998
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I've now read ALL of Sitchin's Earth Chronicles series, starting with 12th Planet, and have decided that this is the best of the lot! Especially if you're into the mysteries of the Giza pyramids. Not that I would recommend anyone START with it without reading the others preceeding it in the series as they would be at a great loss for background. To do that would leave one with many doubts on where he is coming from and how he has derived a lot of things assumed in this part. I feel that this one is the high-point of the set, giving readers progressing through the series, something to look forward to if they are already bored with the first books in the series.
As always, Mr Sitchin, supports every step of his postulations with multi-sourced, cross-referenced, generally irrefutable evidence from uncorrupted ancient sources. He clearly states when he is making a personal assumption or conjecture, which is not often. Personally, I find his habit (present in most of his works) of misleading the reader temporarily, by following the traditional reasoning process, only to later refute it and explain the truth via his version, somewhat frustrating.
Time-wise, he begins, in this segment, with the earliest recorded times on earth, right up to practically thru the old testament. You'll find out what the Pyramids were used for, who built them, why they were closed off and even who was imprisioned in them. He even gets into who the biblical Abraham really was.
Again, prepare by reading the first two FIRST, but don't miss this one to tie everything together!
