Joining The Dots

I have now published my new book, Joining The Dots, which offers a fresh look at the Atlantis mystery. I have addressed the critical questions of when, where and who, using Plato's own words, tempered with some critical thinking and a modicum of common sense.

Berlitz, Charles (L)

berlitzCharles Berlitz (1913-2003) was born in New York, as Charles Frambach and was the grandson of Maximilian D. Berlitz, founder of the well-known language school. At his grandfather’s request he changed his name to Frambach-Berlitz, subsequently dropping the Frambach completely. He graduated from Yale and eventually became a vice-president of the family company. He spoke a wide range of languages and wrote extensively on the subject.

He spent 26 years of his life in the US Army, half of that on active duty, serving as an intelligence officer. He served in World War II, the Korean War and Vietnam, retiring as a lieutenant colonel.

He developed an interest in mysteries and published a number of related books[165173] including two about Atlantis that support an Atlantic location for the lost civilisation, with the Canaries and Azores as leading contenders.

Unfortunately, his obsession with the Bermuda Triangle led him into lunatic fringe territory when he suggested a link between the ‘Triangle’ and Atlantis citing the ‘prophecies’ of Edgar Cayce and further extending his appeal to various factions of the aforementioned  lunatic fringe, by hinting at a possible connection between Atlantis and UFO’s.
