The Book

Uncovering Mysterious Sites, Symbols, and Societies

The doors of some of the world's best-hidden places and most secretive organizations have now been thrown wide open! Some of the names are familiar: Area 51, Yale's Skull and Bones, Opus Dei, the Esalen Institute. Others are more obscure, hidden by fate or purposeful deception, such as the Mount Weather Emergency Operations Center, the super-secure facility where Vice President Dick Cheney was secreted after the 9/11 attacks, and Germany's Wewelsburg Castle, which was intended to become the mythological centerpiece of the Nazi Regime. Readers can take an unprecedented look deep inside the off-the-map military installations and shadowy organizations that operate in the murkiest corners of our world.

Gentlemen, draw your swords

In the event you missed it, last year Warsaw was the host of the 48th Baltic Nations Kommers, a gathering of Europe’s gallant young members of the colour-wearing fraternity bodies (“corporations”) of Central and Baltic Europe (the attractive website is still live). The patron was His Excellency Count BronisÅ‚aw Komorowski, President of Poland.

An excellent book on the Polish Baltic Fraternities before 1918 was published for the meeting, in Polish, German, English, Latvian and Estonian.

Chivalry is clearly not dead in old Europe.
