Book Review: “Columbus - The Untold Story” The incredible story of who Columbus really was...

Columbus: The Untold Story 
By Manuel Rosa 

Book Review 
Until now, this book was only available in Europe and only available in Portuguese, Polish, Lithuanian and Spanish. Now, this gem of a book has been translated into English and needs to be read by an English-speaking audience. The Book Seeks a Publisher. 
In Columbus: The Untold Story, Manuel Rosa has achieved a degree of excellence rarely seen in historical books of any kind. That is especially true regarding books about Christopher Columbus or Cristobal Colon as he was known. Rosa’s research is so compelling and provocative, it was difficult to put down the book. 
The shocking story is not the usual fare of an historical figure. Without a doubt, this book has all the elements of the greatest spy thriller in history. It is grounded in well-substantiated facts. Rosa was meticulous in his arguments that the Columbus we thought we knew bore no similarity to the real man. Colon was a man of mystery and many secrets, secrets that have withstood 500 years of investigation – until now. 
For over the past two decades, Manuel Rosa has doggedly researched Cristobal Colon and his results will astound even the greatest skeptics. His findings should be the cornerstone of any historical account of this spy and double agent who charmed his way into the Spanish monarchs’ court and duped the world. Colon possessed such cunning and genius that it is doubtful that he has an equal even to this day. 
The real Colon was no wool-weaver from Genoa. He was the son of a king. He was a man of letters, not the self-taught and inept man history books would have us believe. His navigational skills were incomparable. He used his talents in order to position himself for his greatest mission, one that only a few people really knew. 
King Joao II of Portugal recognized Colon’s ability and he also knew his true identity. He and Colon had a common goal, a goal that included creating a diversion for the Spanish monarchs. The fantastical journey to “India” that was presented to King Fernando and Queen Isabelle was a glorious ruse. 
Rosa deftly presented the incredible facts about Colon and inserted those pearls of remarkable value throughout the book creating a treasure trove beyond compare. Through Rosa’s expertise, we are able to walk in the footprints of Colon. We discover Colon had to hide his identity even to his dying day. Although throughout his life, he seemed to leave clues regarding his real identity, clues Rosa uncovered and confirmed. Through cryptic signatures and letters written in code, Cristobal Colon was the James Bond prototype, but even Bond didn’t possess abilities like Colon’s. 
If the real identity and mission of Cristobal Colon were presented to a world court today, Manuel Rosa’s work would serve as the indisputable proof about this man’s identity and his mission. It is a masterpiece of great historical significance that hopefully the world will not ignore. We owe it to ourselves to know the truth. Thanks to Manuel Rosa, we now know the truth about Cristobal Colon, prince, explorer and spy.
