Description

The whereabouts of a stolen hoard of treasure knowns as "Rommel's Gold" is one of the most elusive and enduring mysteries of World War II. The fabulous cashe, mainly comprising gold ingots and believed to be worth millions of pounds, was first heard of in 1941 following the German Blitzkrieg of Yugoslavia. Rumours have abounded regarding what actually happened to the missing gold, and where it might be. These include claims that it was seized by a renegade Panzer unit and hidden in the North African desert for reclamation after the war; that it was despatched to Germany as a gift for Hitler but never reached its destination; or that it was taken by Italian prisoners who set sail for Corsica, where their boat mysteriously sank just offshore. "The Mystery of Rommel's Gold" examines all the various theories, tracking down the route taken by the missing treasure and reviewing the searches that have taken place since the mid-20th century.
