Description

"Nazi Gold" is the real-life story of the theft of a fabulous treasure - the German national gold and foreign currency reserves worth some #2,500,000,000 at the time of the original investigation - which disappeared in transit following the collapse of the Nazi regime in 1945. It is also the story of a mystery and a cover-up in an American scandal which pre-dated Watergate by nearly 30 years. 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, 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.

Author Biography

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.
