The authors spent over 10 years on their own kind of quest for the Holy Grail, into the secretive history of early France. What they found, researched with the tenacity and attention to detail that befits any great quest, is a tangled and intricate story of politics and faith that reads like a mystery novel. It is the story of the Knights Templar, and a behind-the-scenes society called the Prieure de Sion, and its involvement in reinstating descendants of the Merovingian bloodline into political power.

In August 1914, as the British Expeditionary Force marched through Belgium to meet up with French forces, they suddenly and unexpectedly found themselves confronted by the main thrust of the advancing German army. Although they were vastly outnumbered, this highly-trained force of army regulars held off the attack so effectively that the Germans remained unaware of the tiny size of the force that opposed them. It was in these extreme circumstances that the wounded and dying soldiers were said to have seen strange angelic forms in the sky that protected them from slaughter.
To a sixteen-year-old boy growing up in early 20th century Britain, the First World War seemed like a great adventure. But nothing could have prepared Adam for what was to come. As a member of the Labour Corps, a group of mainly poorly educated individuals, he had to carry out some of the most disgusting tasks amid the death and carnage occurring every day on the front line. His dreams, and those of his comrades, were shattered by the appalling conditions in which men had to fight, outbreaks of disease, executions, and all the other horrors of war.

What is this strange area in the Atlantic that seems to swallow up ships and planes without warning? Finally, thanks to Larry Kusche, a reference librarian at Arizona State University, we have a plausible answer to this most perplexing enigma. Intrigued by the many requests for information he received, Kusche went on an intensive hunt for knowledge. He gathered everything he could find about each incident from sources as diverse as the military, insurance agencies, and newspaper reports. The truth is in hereand it's logical, smart, and backed up by evidence.
"For more than three hundred years the legend of 'the man in the iron mask' has held a place on the stage of human enquiry and debate. From the time of his incarceration during the reign of Louis XIV right through to our modern day, the awful fate of the man condemned to live a lifetime with his face encased in iron has inspired, depending on the era, anger, horror, pity and fascination." So opened the New York Times review of the first edition of The Man Behind the Iron Mask.
