In Lisbon: War in the Shadows of the City of Light 1939-45, a gripping tale of high-stakes intrigue, betrayal, double-dealing, and survival, Neill Lochery tells the story of how Portugal, a relatively poor European country trying frantically to remain neutral amidst extraordinary pressures, survived WW2 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.
