Hitler's Holy Relics Release

I’m pleased to announce that it is only days away from the publication of my most recent book, Hitler’s Holy Relics, a True Story of Nazi Plunder and the Race to Recover the Crown Jewels of the Holy Roman Empire, which will be released by Simon and Schuster on May 11, 2010.

In this, my latest true-crime thriller, readers can follow the footsteps of First Lieutenant Walter Horn, whom Generals Patton and Eisenhower pulled from the ranks of the U.S. Third Army and sent to Nuremberg, Germany on a mission to recover and secure the Crown Jewels of the Holy Roman Empire, a collection of holy relics Hitler plundered from the Austrian treasury in March 1938. As knowledgeable readers will know, this priceless collection of ancient treasures include the Holy Lance or Spear of Destiny, the spear-point that Roman centurion Longinus was alleged to have used to pierce the side of Christ at the Crucifixion.

I’ve already posted background materials and an interview which describes how I came to write this book—my sixth—along with the first of five short mini-documentaries I’ve made on the subject. In this first mini-doc, compiled from motion-picture footage from the National Archives, in College Park, Maryland, is film which was shot by the Army Corps of Engineers in 1946 that has never before been broadcast or made available on the internet. The actual Army Corps of Engineers film can from which I retrieved this footage was rusted closed and sealed when I found it. I had to use my pen-knife to pry it open. The footage was in very poor shape; you’ll note the deterioration at the edges of the screen. It is, however, remarkable in just about every way.

In the days ahead I’ll be posting four other mini-docs with original movie footage on subjects I cover in the book—ranging from Heinrich Himmler’s secret bunker under Nuremberg Castle to his Wewelsburg castle fortress. I’ll also be giving lectures in various cities around the country, so keep an eye on my calendar to see my upcoming tour dates. I’ll be pleased to meet you in person and share with you details of what I’ve found in my research and how I found it.
