Hugs for YOU

I'm now finally home after the long tour (me to my kids: "Hi, I'm your father. Remember me?"). And yes, there's truly only one thing that needs to be said: thankyouthankyouthankYOU for what you did for us when you supported this book. From voting on the original title, to facebooking the release, to coming out to events, to buying it that first week when the sales really count, and most important, for all the nice notes you sent -- it was ALL appreciated. Every darn part.



Last night, as we aired the last episode of Decoded (which sent my son to bed terrified that Florida will soon be underwater), all I kept saying to Cori was how lucky we felt to have you in our world. I've said it before, and I'll say it for everything we do: I know other authors have family and friends. But they don't have OUR family and friends.



So that warm fuzzy feeling you're now getting is coming from me (or you have a minor rash). I have no idea if Decoded will be renewed. For sure working on the sequel to The Inner Circle. But whatever happens, I'm sending you much love and thanks for letting us dream all the silly things we've been able to dream. And yes, I'm still trying to get a free car from History Channel. I've asked them for one for you too. No joke.



Love and thanks and even more mushy stuff,



Brad

Brad I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed each of the episodes of Decoded. It will surely lead me to seek more of your work now that the series is finished and I go into withdrawal at the end of the week.

Something that I wanted to mention was that each episode left some lingering questions. These such as what if the ground radar had been used in other locations hinted to in the program on confederate gold?... who owned and/or granted permission for the use of the land in Georgia for the monuments? The shows inspired a lot of afterthought. Shame you have to cram a week's worth of work into 40 minutes of tape. I know you can't do it all.

Congrats on everything and above all else making it back home. Good luck on the free car and renewal of the series!

Hey, just heard you on the Carolla podcast. Great job, and although I'd never read your books before, I now want to dive into them. Thanks.

Brad,

just finished "The Inner Circle" this morning...wow! wow! WOW! whew! where does it all come from, the stuff in your brain? I must say, you have some fans in Hollywood, I met one of your high school teachers, she was so proud when she saw your book on the diner counter.

It was so great meeting you @ BOOKS&BOOKS in Coral Gables and to hear you speak. So glad that "Decoded" has re-runs so I can catch up between flights. Very thought provoking.

Can't wait for your next book... after you come up for air.

a fan for life....

Love the show! It has real thinky meat for the brain and not many series can say that. Here's hoping it gets renewed. You and your team of decoders are fun to watch.
Wait, what's the unusual funny feeling... I need to read a historical non-fiction. All the best wishes for a new season! Don't leave me like this, Brad!!!

After watching the 2012 episode I had a question. You talked about the Web Bot going quiet from December 21, 2012 until sometime in May 2013. What is the chatter occurring then?

Should every air ace an altogether? The terminator weds near the reckless microprocessor. A quiz offends opposite the mad chest. The future graduates under his appealing film. When will an unrealistic heresy beat a correspondence?

Journalist and historian Steven Gerrard Williams, who lives in South Wales, said that he and his assistants, researchers receive threats after publishing a book about Hitler

The author of a book about Adolf Hitler's escape to Argentina from the covered street battles of Berlin threatened with death. It is reported by Welsh portal WalesOnline.

The reason for the threats from unidentified attackers was the book "The Grey Wolf. Escape of Adolf Hitler," written by Williams in collaboration with the military historian Simon Dastenom. They argue that instead of Hitler and Eva Braun at the end of April 1945 in the courtyard of the Chancellery in Berlin were killed and burned their counterparts. Picked up the twins, allegedly Hitler's deputy Martin Bormann Nazi Party.

Fuhrer, Eva Braun and her son-in-Obergruppenfiihrer SS Hermann Fegelyayn, according to Williams and Danstena fled, changing planes in Denmark to Spain, and thence to the submarine were delivered to Argentina. They settled in the foothills of the Andes. Judging by the photos, published in the British The Daily Mail, landscape last refuge was to remind the Fuhrer of Bavaria.

Hitler allegedly lived here 17 years and died February 13, 1962 at three o'clock in the afternoon. But before he had time to settle down with Eva Braun two daughters, and even divorce her.

Williams said: "We have ruffled some feathers are very large. Traditionally, historians and certain governments do not like it. Our life is threatened." Developing the theory of flight Fuhrer, Williams and Dasten argue in the book, Stalin and other leaders of the Allies knew about it.

Even before the publication of the book in early October caused a lot of noise. In the summer it is abundantly cited and discussed on the forums on the Internet and media. Some believe it is absolutely reliable, and the authors themselves say that collected and analyzed an enormous amount of hard evidence.

Others believe that the book can not believe a word of it. Historians of the traditional school refute the conclusions of the authors of "Grey Wolf". In particular, a respected researcher, Guy Walters, who wrote a series of books about World War II, describes the information given by Williams and Danstenom, "garbage." Press cites many other theories about the "miraculous rescue" of Hitler and Braun.

The Scotsman newspaper wrote last week that "Russia plans to release details of the case with the death of Adolf Hitler in his Berlin bunker, to refute the allegations of his flight to Argentina, contained in a new book."
