Many reviewers call Mr. Rosa’s history of Christopher Columbus “an alternative portrait … and... historical revisionism”.
Manuel Rosa has written a real game changer in our understanding of the dynamics associated with the Age of Discovery. It is a paradigm shifting history book on Columbus and his discoveries. The book is definitive and based on too many primary sources to have reviewers call his work historical revisionism, more precisely, it is a serious correction to the misinformation propagated by respected and serious historians.

As a Master Mariner, Captain and navigator, as well an avid student of the “Age of Discovery”, I was just mesmerized by the detailed and fascinating information based on primary sources, not looked at by previous historians/biographers.

Mr. Rosa finally gives us a true picture of the “Age of Discovery”, loosely defined as the European historical period from the 15th century to the 18th century, marking the time in which extensive overseas exploration emerged as a powerful factor in European culture and globalization.

Being of Lithuanian descent, I am very familiar with how easily history of a nation and people can be distorted.

What Manuel Rosa has accomplished by writing "Columbus-The Untold Story" is stunning. Through his extensive research, familiarity with traditions and customs of the times, and his mastery of Portuguese, Italian, and Spanish, he has managed to piece together and expose a history, taught to us and our children, fraught
with inaccuracies and outright lies about "The Great Discoveror," Christopher Columbus.

The greatest of sceptics would find it difficult to argue against the primary source documents presented by Rosa. However, Rosa goes one step further by weaving in and analyzing customs and traditions of the time that enhance the believability of his evidence and narrative exponentially.

The book not only paints a picture of the intrigues between Italy, Portugal, and Spain, but causes a monumental stir by unmasking Columbus true identity and the connection with East-Central Europe.

All in all, this is a book that belongs in all institutions of higher learning so that the work of correcting history may begin.

I have been waiting a good many years, too many to count, in fact, for this book by Manuel Rosa. If you want a book that is well researched, complete with details and sources, then this is the tome for you. Twenty-five years of research have pieced together a stunning array of artifacts and data, complete with DNA test results; one that resulted in the deceitfulness of power, of politics, false identities and false discoveries. Herein you will be able follow the author, as he connects the dots to a medieval conspiracy, so massive, so bold, so risky, and so well executed, that it has continued to fool the world for 500 years. This book, without a doubt, is one of the best to captivate me in a very long time. Manuel Rosa makes an exceptionally strong case for those who still insist on believing otherwise.

Sometimes the work of scrupulous historians with a very inquisitive mind offers us a very decent and convincing account on the historical revisionism. Recently Manuel Rosa the American amateur historian with Portuguese roots provided a book entitled ''Columbus - The untold story'', in which he presented convincing theory already partially supported even by investigations of DNA material (still much waiting to be done, but the kinship between the Christopher Colombus and Colom as well as Colombo families was already excluded by DNA analysis) that man commonly known as Christopher Columbus was not of Italian heritage (moreover his knowledge of Italian was scant) and most likely he was acting as an agent of Portuguese Kingdom. His role as this agent was to focus Spanish attention on the ''New Land'' that was already known to Portuguese and to distract Spanish attention from Portuguese possessions. The origin of the great sailor who is commonly regarded as the one who ''discovered'' American continents for Europeans for the ''first time'' is actually not known. All we know about his young age and his family is built on the very frail presumptions. But Mr. Rosa thanks to his tedious and accurate analysis of the available historical sources and brave as well as inquisitive mind connects the alleged ''discoverer'' of America with Polish king of Lithuanian roots Valdislav of Varna, making the last ''Crusader King'', who is wrongly believed to have fallen in the battle of Varna in 1444 AD his father. This is a example of a very decent and well-researched historical revisionism that is supported by the scrupulous and tedious analysis of available sources. This book offers completely new perspective on the Age of Discoveries.

An amazing book that exposes the TRUE history of Christopher Columbus. After reading this book, you will realize that everything you have been told about Columbus is a lie. Historians have been telling & re-telling a story that is backed by no evidence. Author Manuel Rosa has done years of research and with his ability to understand, read & write in multiple languages, he has uncovered Columbus's real identity. Was Columbus born in Portugal, was his father a Polish king, was he sent to Spain as spy? Learn all the evidence that answer these questions and more.
