This project is the result of a decade of groundbreaking detective work and rigorous research in dozens of public and private repositories around the world. It draws on a rich and eclectic variety of novel sources in eight languages.

Incorporating hitherto unexamined intelligence dossiers, never-before-seen letters, secret diaries, forgotten grassroots voices from dozens of local newspapers and activist groups, and even a real-life treasure map, not a stone has gone unturned.

I hope you enjoy the journey as much as I have.
