Interesting story, though at times overly detailed and a tad tedius; a documentary in story form about real-life army sleuth Walter Horn's WWII investigation of Nazi plundering and US troops later recovery of the Holy Roman Empire relics, including the lance said to have been used to slay Jesus on the Cross. I can't totally recommend this, as the story as presented derails at times, and generally fails to keep to an even and on-course pace. But if you are curious about the subject, a real-life Indiana Jones adventure if you please, it's worth a listen.

In 1424, the Holy Roman Empire relics, including the lance said to have been used to slay Jesus Christ on the Cross, were moved from Prague to Nuremberg. In 1796, as Napoleon's army approached, the collection was moved to Vienna for safe keeping. When Austria was annexed to Germany in WWII, Hitler ordered the collection be returned to Nuremberg and hidden. This story -- a true documentary of their recovery -- begins in 1945, and is about how they were found by invading US troops and returned to Austria.
