And to make this richly illustrated book even richer, each chapter invites the reader along for an interactive experience through the addition of removable facsimile documentsthe evidence! It's a treasure trove for conspiracy buffs, a Griffin and Sabine for history lovers.
Adapted from Decoded, Meltzers hit show on the HISTORY network, History Decoded explores fascinating, unexplained questions. Is Fort Knox empty? Why was Hitler so intent on capturing the Roman Spear of Destiny? Whats the government hiding in Area 51? Where did the Confederacys $19 million in gold and silver go at the end of the Civil War? And did Lee Harvey Oswald really act alone? Meltzer sifts through the evidence; weighs competing theories; separates what we know to be true with whats stilland perhaps foreverunproved or unprovable; and in the end, decodes the mystery, arriving at the most likely solution. Along the way we meet Freemasons, Rosicrucians, Nazi propagandists, and the real DB Cooper.
Bound in at the beginning of each story is a custom-designed envelopea faux 19th-century leather satchel, a U.S. government classified filecontaining facsimiles of relevant evidence: John Wilkes Booths alleged unsigned will, a map of the Vatican, Kennedys death certificate. The whole is a riveting, interactive adventure through the compelling world of mysteries and conspiracies.
