In this riveting narrative, renowned historian Neill Lochery offers a revelatory portrait of World War II's back stage as he tells the story of how Portugal, a relatively poor European country trying frantically to remain neutral amidst extraordinary pressures, survived the war not only physically intact but significantly wealthier. The country's emergence as a prosperous European Union nation would be financed in part, it turns out, by a cache of Nazi gold.

The narrative is informative and interesting.
This is history, not a novel.
The dry, objective style is appropriate.

Thoroughly researched and a compelling situation, but Mr Lochery's story-telling left something to be desired. I will read further on the subject - this could have been a better book!
