Autorentext
Kenneth D. Alford is an internationally recognized historical consultant for television productions involving Nazi looting and is the author of several books. Retired from a career in banking, he lives in Richmond, Virginia. LTC (Ret.) Thomas M. Johnson retired from a military career in the U.S. Army and began a successful career writing militaria books. His edged weapons books have brought him international recognition and are considered a baseline upon which many other references are based. He and his business, Johnson References Books & Militaria are located in Fredericksburg, Virginia. Mike F. Morris, a noted collector of military memorabilia, began his passion for amassing military objects in 1963. A few years later he established the successful Commercial Gun Shows and German Military Objects in Texas. Mike is the co-author of Luger Holsters and Accessories and makes his home in Fredericksburg, Texas.

Zusammenfassung
This book is a must for anyone with an interest in missing caches of gold and the financial aspects of military history. In the closing days of World War II, the U.S. Government took into custody 370 tons of gold from Nazi Germany, but the gold, silver, and currency still missing is even greater. The author traces the recovery of more than 500 of these large caches by the Allies and then their mysterious disbursement. Among their finds, the Monetary Men of the U.S. Army uncovered 288 tons of gold, with hordes of silver, diamonds, and precious jewels in a salt mine in Merkers, Germany. They took in Holocaust valuables from Dachau and Buchenwald, Ustasha Croatian Gold, and Italian Fascist gold. An appendix contains a timeline and summaries of all the shipments recovered by the U.S., as well as a financial spreadsheet detailing the 370 tons of gold recovered and its final distribution.
