It's the only book on WWII which I was not able to put down.
Purchased in London and kept reading all the way into Budadest.

Be careful to only read / watch stories from the victors!

This book is more about what the allies (USA soldiers) did after the fall of Germany,
while in Germany (and Austria) than it is about the Third Reich.

History is written by the victors - and we children of the Allies learned what the victors wanted us to know. But in reality, as in all wars, the aftermath is not a tidy story.

This book details the Allied robbery of incredible wealth and cultural treasures in the early post war years before it was easy to trace greed prompted theft...large scale and to date still mostly unsolved.

I read all 341 pages non-stop. It may not compell you the same way but even at a more leisurely pace it will leave you

This book chronicles the large scale corruption that existed in the American zone of occupation in southern Germany post W.W.II. It also exposes the subsequent shameful cover-up that was so successful most people nowadays have no knowledge of the extent of the crimes. Nazi Gold was first published in 1984 and since that time there has been remarkably little new research on the matter. Sayer and Botting's book remains the master of the subject.

Very good book about the history of the American Army Government in Germany. The book is filled with information and weaves a very familiar picture of crime and cover-up.
