Are you an Abe Aficionado?
A Civil War Buff?
An Overall American History Ace?
Or just some who really, really likes vampires?
Whichever you might count yourself as, and however horrified you may be that this book exists and the unholy union it represents, it is most definitely worth reading. A genuinely good story wrapped around factual history, and tastefully littered with American icons, this telling of the Great Emancipator’s life and the driving forces behind him might actually pique your interest in subjects you once found dull (Civil War history), too grisly (Slavery), or embarrassing (you know, that long-running infatuation you have with Vampires). Don’t disservice yourself by passing this one by.

From Paris to Stalingrad, the Nazis systematically plundered all manner of art and antiquities, but the first and most valuable treasures they looted were the Crown Jewels of the Holy Roman Empire. In Hitler’s Holy Relics, bestselling author Sidney Kirkpatrick tells the riveting and never-before-told true story of how an American college professor turned Army sleuth recovered these cherished symbols of Hitler’s Thousand-Year Reich before they could become a rallying point in the creation of a Fourth Reich. Drawing on unpublished interrogation and intelligence reports, as well as on diaries, letters, journals, and interviews in the United States and Germany, Kirkpatrick tells this riveting and true story with cinematic detail and reveals — for the first time — how Hitler, obsessed with the occult and dreams of his own grandeur, nearly succeeded in creating a Fourth Reich based around these venerable relics.
