Hitler's Holy Relics : A True Story of Nazi Plunder and the Race to Recover the Crown Jewels of the Holy Roman Empire Paperback
From Paris to Stalingrad, the Nazis systematically plundered all manner of art and antiquities.
But the first and most valuable treasure they looted were the Crown Jewels of the Holy Roman Empire.
This is the true-life Indiana Jones story of a college professor turned Army sleuth who foils a Nazi plot to preserve these cherished symbols of Hitler's Thousand Year Reich.
Author Sidney Kirkpatrick draws on recently discovered and previously unpublished documents, including interrogation and intelligence reports, diaries and correspondence, as well as on interviews with all remaining living participants involved with the case, to re-create this thrilling true-life story.
