It’s an irresistible combination: Brad Meltzer, a born
storyteller, counting down the world’s most intriguing
unsolved mysteries. 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 documents—the evidence! It’s a treasure trove for
conspiracy buffs, a Griffin and Sabine for history
Adapted from Decoded, Meltzer’s 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”? What’s the government hiding in Area 51?
Where did the Confederacy’s $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 what’s still—and perhaps forever—unproved 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 envelope—a faux 19th-century
leather satchel, a U.S. government classified
file—containing facsimiles of relevant evidence: John Wilkes
Booth’s alleged unsigned will, a map of the Vatican,
Kennedy’s death certificate. The whole is a riveting,
interactive adventure through the compelling world of
mysteries and conspiracies.
