This book, Gold Warriors, is an exhaustively researched account of how Japan sequestered gold and treasure during the first half of the 20th century on behalf of the unbelievably greedy and bloodthirsty Japanese emperor Hirohito and his band of generals and crime bosses. This acquisition continued as Japan conquered their region in WWII but then they began hiding it in Philippine tunnels and sea wrecks a I became interested in the topic of Philippine treasure hunting after reading Cryptonomicon.
This acquisition continued as Japan conquered their region in WWII but then they began hiding it in Philippine tunnels and sea wrecks as defeat loomed. The US conquering force became aware of this plunder and had a seagrxve with what to do with it. Much of this plunder was bullion so the book details how this was gold was sanctified and reinjected into world banking systems via Macao, the Bahamas, and Switzerland.
Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos go to incredible lengths to cash in on this booty. Why would a family with millions want billions and billions?
Gold Warriors: America’s Secret Recovery of Yamashita’s Gold by Sterling Seagrave
That’s why I’ll never be monetarily rich. The book describes how governments become involved in the horde by issuing gold certificates and then declaring them counterfeit. The gold is used to fight the era’s consummate problem – communism. It buys political favors and weapon systems. Legal battles in Hawaii shed some light but people die normally and mysteriously. No surprise – we see money and power go hand in hand in corruption. I find the topic intriguing but the writing leaves much to be desired.
Gold Warriors: America’s Secret Recovery of Yamashita’s Gold
The chapters read more like individual awrriors projects with too many characters than a consistent, readable story. The book would also benefit from an update since wrriors than a decade has passed. I wasn’t troubled by the authors selling a CD with supplemental support. What percentage of the Japanese plunder was NOT gold, and where is this jewelry and other artwork?
What efforts have the Japanese and Philipinos made similar to that described on the US part? How did this huge amount of gold play into leaving the gold standard and how much went to Fort Knox? This is a sad and interesting part of history. Dec 27, Chuckdee rated it it was ok.
Dec 27, Craig Earnshaw rated it really liked it. We all know about the Nuremberg trials. The Japanese were seagarve times worse in their treatment of their enemies and yet, no Kyoto trials.
This book will astound and anger you. Mar 07, Tim rated it really liked it. Just started this book. I found out about it from a podcast Goldd listen to called “Black Op Radio. I had to buy the book. I do think it will be interesting. I have so far just read the intro, which just rehashes most of what I heard in the interview. Why this author warriots interviewed on this show is because of a connection with one of the main characters in his sdagrave with the assassinatio Just started this book.
Why this author was interviewed on this show is because of a connection with one of the main characters in his story with wariors assassination of JFK. General Ed Lansdale is a name you will come across when studying the JFK assassination and Lansdale apparently is also involved in this book “Gold Warrior’s” which is about America recovering a vast amount of gold from Japan.
I encouarge anyone to listen to the interview at www. It is well researched and has lots of documentation to back it up. Will update you further as I go. Finished this one awhile ago but failed to update my information on it. It qarriors ashame that the additional information isn’t available for a reasonable price. He advertises in the book that he has more info on cds which has maps, pictures and other items that corroborate his story, but the problem is that it is a bit pricey.
I would like to have the cd but don’t want to spend that much on it. I think the story just solidifies my assessment that no matter what government there is in the world it is always going to be corrupt at some level. I believe the Lord Acton quote is appropriate, “Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
Apr 13, Michael Connolly rated it liked it Shelves: Fascinating tale of Japanese war crimes. According to the Warfiors, the Bold looted a great deal of gold from Asia, then buried it in the Philippines, where Ferdinand Marcos later used it to make himself rich and powerful.
The United States also persuaded the Japanese to give us much of the gold that they stole, and we then used it to finance our Cold War operations. In return, we agreed not to prosecute the majority of Japanese wareiors crimes. It is difficult to know how wafriors of the Seagrave’s Fascinating tale of Japanese war crimes.
It is difficult xeagrave know how much of the Seagrave’s story is true. From a general understanding of human nature, it would be difficult not to believe that the Japanese looted Asia.
It is certainly puzzling that the United States allowed the Japanese to walk away from most of their war crimes. Dec 09, Mercurybard rated it really liked it Shelves: The opening makes this seem like a conspiracy theory, but the last fifth of the book is anotations and citations and the authors offer to ship you a CD of scanned vold documents and interviews for free if you want to investigate more.
The premise–that during World War II, the Japanese looted trillions of dollars in gold, gems, and other precious artifacts from Korea, China, and Southeast Asia and then hid them in secret, booby-trapped locations around the Philippines–is fascinating. Definitely going to have to look for Seagrave’s book on the Yamato dynasty.
Dec 13, hoffnarr rated it liked it. While full of references and footnotes and the authors have clearly done a great deal of research the style of the book weaves an elaborate web of conspiracy that makes me very reluctant to buy the whole story. The book depends on the kinds of guilt-by-association and pointing out of coincidences that should always only point a historian to issues that need to be confirmed with further research, rather than form the key hinges in a complex accusation.
If you are interested in Japanese and East A While full of references and footnotes and the authors have clearly done a great deal of research the style of the book weaves an elaborate web of conspiracy that makes me very reluctant to buy the whole story.
If you are interested in Japanese and East Asian history of the period, however, the book at least brings up personages, events, and potentially damning connections that can send you to other sources or if you are a historian, spark interest in new topics. Oct 31, Stephanie rated it really liked it Shelves: My carpool partner told me about hearing this tale on NPR and it was fascinating, so I tracked down the book. What a scary story, about the huge treasure fund that has been used for decades to fund covert operations worldwide since the end of WW2.
Sadly, NOTHING surprises me anymore, and I do tend to be seduced by what some call “conspiracy theories” — but just because they are thusly labeled does not mean they are untrue.

Hey, it was cheap. Feb 24, Manheim Wagner rated it it was amazing. An indispensable book, “Gold Warriors” lays out a very sound argument on how the world of black finance works and in turn provides strong evidence of how this black finance was acquired.
The Seagraves have done a marvelous job weaving the story together, which involves the insane greed of the Japanese Imperial Family,the Yakuza, the Marcos Family, the Vatican, the American banking elite and both the O.
