Thanks for this review of Arthur Brand's "Hitler's Horses" -- I've had this book in my library for a year or so but not gotten around to reading it yet. You've enticed me!

Hello Br, it’s not particularly well-written. The author chose to tell the story as a series of conversations between the various individuals involved. Nevertheless, NS Germany, Cold War Germany, Gudrun Himmler - all the elements are there. Without giving anything away, the missing statues were virtually hiding in plain site for decades.

I agree. I'm glad the book exists as the content is definitely interesting, but I found his writing style to be a quite glib and sensationalist in places.

You're both correct. I've read it, as well, and while pretty interesting, it was somewhat written in the style of a thriller...then sort of petered out towards the end.

The german designation "thorak pferde reichskanzlei" leads to hundreds of links on the Internet, perhaps this video of the German TV station MDR is interesting:

Auf der Jagd nach Hitlers Bronzepferden / In pursuit of Hitler's bronze horses

Link to the german documentary: https://www.mdr.de/video/mdr-videos/rep ... n-100.html (30 minutes)

Probably also available on YouTube... ? :?

Please check this german online streaming portal for a possible download: https://mediathekviewweb.de

Two download links av. there, please see attached screenshots:

Thank you Hans for the links. I suspect the ideal location will be the “Deutsches Historisches Museum” in Berlin. If you hear something about exhibiting them, that would be much appreciated information.

Tschüss,

A man has done a great job of finding and organizing a photo of this building. I just showed the door.
