520    Wealth of an Empire tells the dramatic true story of a top
       -secret mission that changed the course of World War II: 
       Great BritainÆs shipment of virtually its entire treasury 
       across the treacherous waters of the North Atlantic to 
       safety in the United States and Canada. Had the Germans 
       captured or sunk the treasure-laden ships, the war could 
       have been lost more than eighteen months before the 
       Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. The British government 
       authorized this immensely risky and long-running operation
       not only because of the obvious danger that GermanyÆs 
       rising militancy posed but also becaus.
