From the Back Cover
ARCHAEOLOGY / HISTORY Was man born a warrior, or were we taught to make war? In this, the third book of The Earth Chronicles series, Zecharia Sitchin provides startling evidence that the "gods" who had come to Earth from the twelfth planet Nibiru engaged in a series of fierce battles for supremacy on our planet, enlisting the Earthlings in their wars. Sitchin relies on meticulous study of ancient records--from Sumerian tablets and the Old Testament to the ancient myths of the Canaanites, Hittites, and Hindu teachings--to trace the saga of gods and men from a creative beginning to a tragic end. He then uses modern sources such as ASA photographs of Earth taken from space to reveal evidence of a huge nuclear blast in the Sinai that took place 4,000 years ago, forever changing life on Earth. Sitchin's unique reexamination of ancient mysteries explains The Great Flood, the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, and other past cataclysmic events in the history of humanity, opening insights into our future. "An intriguing book ead it. ... Sitchin is to be congratulated. ... He makes his point) and makes it well.

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. Next, he identifies Abraham of the Bible as the noble son of a Sumerian priest and not a Semite at all; more incredibly, he argues that the real purpose of Abraham's ordained trip to Canaan was to stop an invading army of eastern kings from capturing the Anunnaki control center and spaceport in the Sinai peninsula. Finally, Sitchin argues that Sodom and Gomorrah, as well as the Sinai space port, were actually destroyed by nuclear weapons and that the tragic disappearance of the ancient Sumerians is to be explained by the radioactive fallout of the explosions drifting over the area.
True or not, Sitchin's theories are fascinating. His ideas are not his own, they are his interpretation of the ancient writings of the Sumerians, Egyptians, Israelites, and succeeding thinkers and historians. While many would condemn Sitchin for challenging the truth of the Bible, he actually helps support the history of that document--much of the information he has discovered from Sumerian, Akkadian, Egyptian, and other ancient sources actually matches remarkably well the facts presented in the Bible. Of course, one is hard pressed to trust Sitchin's data implicitly (unless one can translate diverse ancient writings), but he does succeed in presenting a unified, linear chronology of events. Whether his interpretation is correct or not, it does serve to explain a number of unsolved mysteries from man's past and makes for fascinating reading.
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!
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.
