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. 1.

High above the Alps: A Bird´s Eye View of Geology. A Visual Homage to the Awe Inspiring Geology of an Incredible Mountain Range. The Alps are the most famous, geologically active mountain range on Earth and bear an unbelievable wealth of geological highlights of unparalleled teaching potential, scientific interest, historical significance and sheer beauty. Although some of these have been made World Heritage sites by UNESCO, many of these highlights have not received attention outside a small community of Earth scientists and climbers. In part, this is because many geological features are only to be seen in inaccessible regions: in vertical rock faces, on the summits of high peaks or simply too large in scale to be appreciated from the ground. As such, aerial photography is the only way to do these features justice. In this project geologically oriented aerial photography of the Alps is presented and explained for the geologists and interested layperson alike. High above the Alps: A Bird´s Eye View of Geology ... is a ´´coffee-table´´ type book that explains the geology of the entire Alpine chain between Vienna and Nice on hand of photos taken from a small aircraft. The book contains more than 200 large-scale panoramic photos of the Alps and 170 geological diagrams, maps and other explanatory illustrations. The volume measures 24.5 x 30 cm in size and contains 296 pages. The book is a substantially revised and expanded version of the German language book ´´DIE GEOLOGIE DER ALPEN AUS DER LUFT´´, 3rd edition, which was published in 2011.

For centuries the Alps have seen the march of armies, the flow of pilgrims and Crusaders, the feats of mountaineers, and the dreams of engineers - and some 14 million people live among their peaks today. In The Alps, Stephen O´Shea takes listeners up and down these majestic mountains, journeying through their 500-mile arc across France, Italy, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Germany, Austria, and Slovenia. Along the way he explores the reality behind Hannibal and his elephants´ famous crossing in 218 BCE; he reveals how the Alps have profoundly influenced culture, from Frankenstein to Heidi to The Sound of Music; and he visits the spot where Arthur Conan Doyle staged Sherlock Holmes´ death scene, the bloody site of the Italians´ retreat in World War I, and Hitler´s notorious vacation house, the Eagle´s Nest. Throughout, O´Shea records his adventures with the watchmakers, salt miners, cable-car operators, and yodelers who define the Alps today. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Robert Fass.
