Fantastic book. The author methodically checks off the lies, the misinformation, the forgeries, and focuses on the aspects of Colón's life the historians have ignored or tried to explain away with ridiculous assertions. In particular, Rosa includes extensive family charts that show Colón's family was very close to the man to whom he wrote in Portuguese, calling Colón, "our special friend," King John II. It's clear in reading biographies of Columbus that the writers have never understood who Kiin ...more

This is a difficult book to read as the author drags you through EVERY document and reference, many forgeries, false leads, intentional obfuscations and secret plots. BUT if you want to discover the truth, this is what you have to do. The author also has the bad habit if repeating his conclusions time and time again; not that we don't want his conclusions, but we can live without the repetitions. I believe that the author is correct in his conclusions, barring the occasional error in some small ...more

I have learned so much about our history from this book that I am still amazed. I would venture to say this book is mistitled this is not just the untold story of Columbus but the untold story of Atlantic navigation and the Templar's role in the secret "discovery" of America.
Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence and Manuel Rosa did an unbelievable job as an investigative detective matching up documents from different countries to show how the world had accepted a history as being w

This book is for someone who is REALLY into Columbus. The book deals meticulously over Columbus’s name and country of origin. I’ll say the book is painstaking in trying to determine Cristoforio’s birth and lineage through a interesting theory on why Columbus’s stuck to his discovery of ‘India.’

This book is most interesting in developing the authors theory that seems to be complicated and complex let alone over 500 years old.

Unless your into this subject deeply one would not enjoy; it’s a slow

I have been waiting a good many years, too many to count, in fact, for this book by Manuel Rosa. If you want a book that is well researched, complete with details and sources, then this is the tome for you. Twenty-five years of research have pieced together a stunning array of artifacts and data, complete with DNA test results; one that resulted in the deceitfulness of power, of politics, false identities and false discoveries. Herein you will be able follow the author, as he connects the dots t ...more
