Between the Alps and a Hard Place: Switzerland in &hellip by Angelo M. Codevilla

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent reading, 31 July 2003
"If you say something often enough it becomes the truth"
This book goes so much deeper than just the Swiss "involvement" in Jewish/Nazi gold - like why exactly Credit Suisse and UBS allowed themselves to be blackmailed into paying "damages". Who was behind it and how were they linked to political powers in the US government. This was an excellent, enlightening read and I highly recommend it for anyone who still thinks what they see and hear from mainstream media is the truth.

3.0 out of 5 stars An interesting read, 17 Jun 2003
Whilst it's freshing to read something different than what's normally painted as fact by the general media, one should keep in mind that controversial writing can sometimes be confused with bad writing. Micheal Moore is certainly not God's gift to investigative journalism, but he presents some interesting points of view and at least provokes some thinking. Perhaps not everything that comes out of a White House briefing is true? This book was certainly not the "revelation" that I was expecting after reading other reviews, but taken with a pinch of salt, it's worth reading.
