The whereabouts of a stolen hoard of treasure known as 'Rommel's Gold' is one of the most elusive and enduring mysteries of the Second World War. This fabulous cache, mainly comprising gold ingots and believed to be worth millions of pounds, was first heard of in 1941 following the German blitzkrieg of Yugoslavia. Rumours abound as to what actually happened to the missing gold, and where it might be today. These include claims that it was seized by a renegade Panzer unit and hidden in the North African desert for reclamation after the war; that it was despatched to Germany as a gift for Hitler but never reached its destination; or that it was taken by Italian partisans who set sail for Corsica, where their boat mysteriously sank just offshore. This book examines the theories and reviews the various searches that have taken place over the last sixty years. This is the first book devoted to this fascinating story, and mixes a dramatic wartime tale of deceit, death, intrigue and greed with a mystery that continues to excite the imagination today.
