O Mundo das Sombras is incorporated in this blog

In order to organize all the materials of my research I decided today to incorporate in this blog posts previously published in another blog I created in the year 2005, which covers the same topic, but written in Portuguese, named O Mundo das Sombras. See it here. From now on the posts will be written in both languages.

Golden Estoril


The Portuguese Royalty and the Court in Cascais, after Sintra, the bourgeoisie just before the end of the Monarchy in Estoril, the refugees, the European nobility, the spies and counter-spies, all the landscape is here. Well written, fully documented, the reader can follow the changes in the scenario in the Sunny Coast of Portugal.
For these who look for primary sources for the knowledge of the secret war in Portugal during 1939-1945 it's noticeable that some parts should be reviewed. But when compared with some fiction made History that is printed nowadays, a word of congratulations must be said.
I bought it once and I bought it twice. First, for myself, afterwards for a friend.
