What really happened to the billions of dollars worth of gold seized by Nazi Germany? What role did the Swiss government play and what are the implications of neutrality during wartime? The author addresses these questions, presents the case for and against Switzerland, and applies the lessons learned from World War II to the broader issue of companies - and countries - profiting during wartime.
Between the Alps and a Hard Place is both thrilling World War II history and an exposé of the shameful selling of historical truth and American foreign policy for political gain.

Pity about the narration and editing
The narration was poor, conveyed a lack of interest and did not do justice at all to the content of the writing. The editing was woeful, partial sentences were regularly repeated.
The story and history were fascinating and there were many revealing accounts included in the writing. The perspective might have been a little biased but no more so than the diametrically biased but popularly held opinions on the subject.
Strap yourself in!
