Desperation, disaster and discovery are unveiled in this book about Hitler’s flagship, torpedoed in the icy waters of the Baltic Sea. As a wartime disaster incurred by the hated Nazi regime, it was less attention grabbing than the sinking of the Titanic even though six times the numbers perished and priceless treasures were lost. The story is a recreation by author Philip Sayers in which he captures the drama and tension that would have shrouded the actual events that did occur. He then unfurls a dramatic story about the discovery and recovery of gold. Beautifully written and meticulously researched, the reader is propelled through an astonishing tale of a wartime history and a diving adventure.
