Description
Perched at the center of the Atlantic hemisphere, Portugal would have been a strategic prize for the Allies or the Axis powers in World War II, though the country remained stubbornly neutral throughout the conflict. But that neutrality is what made Lisbon a port to rival the reputation of Casablanca for its transient population of spies, secret police, arms dealers, bankers, refugees, writers, and black marketeers. Middle East and Mediterranean historian Neill Lochery tells the story of how this relatively poor European country walked a tightrope between the superpowers to survive the war unscathed and significantly wealthier. Portugal's emergence as a prosperous European Union nation, it turns out, was financed in part by a cache of Nazi gold.

"Lochery recounts wartime happenings in the Portuguese capital of Lisbon, where the Allies and the Axis conducted the war through espionage, propaganda, and diplomatic pressure on Salazar to relinquish Portugal's neutrality. A cloak-and-dagger atmosphere accordingly suffuses Lochery's account.... [He] makes original contributions to the literature of neutrality in WWII."Booklist
