Stalin's Silver

Beasant, John, Stalin's Silver, London: Bloomsbury Publishing, 1996, pp216 (text), pp8 (b/w photos). Paperback. Nice used.

The back cover of this paperback proclaims the true story told in this book as "One of the enduring and compelling mysteries of the Second World War." It decribes a high-tech salvage of $380 million in silver from a shipwreck in the Arabian Sea.

This interesting paperback was bought some years ago from Romie, who runs Books Galore downtown at Scotts Road.
