A real life Raiders of the Lost Ark. An American art historian turned Army sleuth races to stay one step ahead of Nazi thugs who have absconded with the Crown Jewels of the Holy Roman Empire—sacred symbols of Hitler’s “Thousand Year Reich”—and their plot to create a Fourth Reich.

Had Hitler succeeded in conquering Europe, he would have crowned himself Holy Roman Emperor. The Nazis had in their possession priceless artifacts that would give Hitler legitimacy in his subjects’ eyes: the Crown Jewels of the Holy Roman Empire including the Spear of Destiny, alleged to have pierced Christ’s side at the Crucifixion. Looted from the royal treasury in Vienna, Austria, the Crown Jewels were hidden in a secret bunker deep beneath Nürnberg castle, known to few but Heinrich Himmler, his staff—and a captured German soldier whose family lived above it. As luck would have it, the officer in charge of interrogating the soldier was First Lieutenant Walter Horn, art history professor. Following his report to General Patton, Horn would be assigned to recover this ancient treasure. Would he find it before covert Nazi agents could use it to revive the defeated regime?

Based on recently discovered and previously unpublished documents and interviews with all remaining living participants, this is a tale that surpasses fiction: part thriller, part detective story, all true.

    " 3.5 STARS - This isn't my type of book (I'm not a huge fan of non-fiction, but it really depends on the subject matter), however, my son is interested in WWII/Hitler history so I read this aloud to him. It was quite detailed and in-depth and it told a story I was totally unfamiliar with so it proved to be rather interesting. Recommended for people who enjoy non-fiction and/or WWII/Nazi history. "

    " What a gem of a book. It always amazes the stories which are still to this day coming out about World War II. This book follows the search for lost treasure and in doing so gives us a view of the top Nazis beliefs. I consider mysel a WWII buff and this book gave me a fresh view of many areas. "

    " This is a real life detective story involving art, jewels, nazis, and the attempt to build a new nazi religion. I learned more about the real going's on of the nazi regime from this book than I have learned from any other source. Read it. "
