The fabulous story of the war’s two greatest hidden treasures.
In 1941, during the German invasion of Yugoslavia, four German soldiers in a scout car stopped a speeding truck and found, to their astonishment, millions of pounds’ worth of gold bullion. A chance discovery, it was to change their lives and set in motion a chain reaction of violence, fear and sudden death.
Two years later the great loot of Rommel’s Afrika Korps was on its way to Germany by special ship, but the journey was never completed – the ship was attacked from the air and the treasure dumped overboard to be recovered later, then fate took a hand, for the whereabouts of the treasure remains a mystery leaving many questions to be answered. In an assignment that lasted two years and took them to Yugoslavia, France, Germany, Italy, and Corsica, the authors discovered that around so many of these unanswered questions had been woven a strange conspiracy of silence, Too many people knew too much ; many had died ; others lived on borrowed time.
A most intriguing books, it tells an unfinished story – unfinished because the search still goes on – a story we guarantee the reader will have to read to the last page.
The book was co-authored with Peter Eton.
