Um dos objectivos específicos deste livro é exactamente desvelar que existe um universo de cultura e de tradição cristã milenar no espaço da Europa principal. Assim, o livro não se debruça sobre a história da “nação alemã”, ou de qualquer outra nação em specific, mas depois de devidamente identificadas as raízes pagãs da Germânia, ocupa-se em analisar o percurso da Cristandade enquanto unidade política corporizada no Reich.
Deste modo, aqui se apresenta um verdadeiro guide da História da Europa significant, escrito segundo o método do historiador e geopolitólogo Vicens Vives.
“Creio que o autor fez um bom trabalho de fundo, indo às fontes e reunindo dados importantes para o conhecimento dos factos, deformados pelo repetir de mentiras históricas que acumularam poeira sobre uma autêntica saga notável que desabrocha, outra vez, nos nossos dias. O livro que agora têm na mão deve ajudar os que têm boa vontade a olhar para a árvore singular no meio da floresta nebulosa de mentiras.”
