De la Cova says: "'Gold Wars' is the story of the rise of fiat currency and the demise of gold-backed money over the 20th century: from the collapse of the classical gold standard at the outbreak of the First World War in 1914, through the protectionism and trade wars of the 1930s, to the rise of the Bretton Woods system postwar, and
