History Decoded: The 10 Greatest Conspiracies of All Time
Adapted from Decoded, Brad Meltzer’s hit show on the HISTORY network, History Decoded explores fascinating, unexplained questions. Sifting through the evidence; weighing competing theories; separates what we know to be true with what’s still—and perhaps forever—unproved or unprovable; and in the end, decodes the mystery, arriving at the most likely solution. Along the way we meet Freemasons, Rosicrucians, Nazi propagandists, and the real DB Cooper.
An endlessly interesting interactive book, each story comes with its own custom-designed envelope—a faux 19th-century leather satchel, a U.S. government classified file—containing facsimiles of relevant evidence: John Wilkes Booth’s alleged unsigned will, a map of the Vatican, Kennedy’s death certificate.
