Editorial Reviews

Review

Conjuring Hitler is the most important book on modern European history since George Lichtheim's Europe in the Twentieth Century. Unlike Lichtheim's volume, however, Conjuring Hitler successfully challenges every aspect of conventional wisdom about the politics of the two world wars. George W. Bush famously said that Saddam Hussein was 'worse than Hitler.' President Bush had a point (his family after all was very familiar with the Nazis). Both Hitler and Saddam likely were evil creations of the US and British intelligence apparatus. As Conjuring Hitler makes clear, the rise of Hitler was assisted at many critical points by the war parties in England and the United States who plotted to set Russia and Germany against one another and collect the spoils. -- Professor David MacGregor, University of Western Ontario

This is a must read that helps move conspiracy theory towards conspiracy fact.
T. Anderson
The economic history alone is enough to prove that Great Britain and the US colluded with the Soviet Union to set Germany up for a big fall.
Phillip M. Rose
There is very little about Hitler in the book, a paragraph here and there until near the end of the book.

This book exposes Great Britain as the master geopolitical chess player of the late 19th to mid-twentieth centuries, and reveals the USA as her successor on the world scene. While this rather sweeping claim would probably not be rebuffed by many, Dr. Preparata's claims regarding the extent of Great Britain's power and manipulation are truly breathtaking.

I was convinced of the basic arguments that Dr. Preparata made concerning Great Britain's economic and political machinations. He cites multiple contemporaneous and modern sources in four different languages to support his historical accounts. The economic history alone is enough to prove that Great Britain and the US colluded with the Soviet Union to set Germany up for a big fall.

The final brief chapter makes two assertions that I will mention here. The first assertion is that "(t)he present geopolitical policy of the United States is a direct and wholly consistent continuation of the old imperial strategy of Britain". The other main assertion is that the Allied elite's redacted version of history we've been taught, especially the self-serving anti-German tirades, is scandalously false. I can only agree with Dr. Parata, as far as he goes, but in his attempt to set the record straight he also tells only part of the story. I do not question the author's motivation, for I think he means well, but I would like to point out a few things that I noticed. To borrow an expression, if something seems too bad to be true, it probably isn't.

The author's main thesis is supported by more documentation than most readers would ever be able to digest, much less gain access to. Many of the books in the 10-page bibliography must be long out of print and found in only a few major libraries.

The book is worth buying just for the bibliography. Preparata has done a wonderful job assembling reference material and it is apparent that he has read and digested that material. This is a must read that helps move conspiracy theory towards conspiracy fact. Excellent anaysis throughout. My only complaint is that the author wants to prove his erudition through his vocabulary - but I suppose that can be a learning opportunity for those of limited vocabulary with a good dictionary or access to the Internet.

Although many of these ideas have been expressed by Sutton, et al., Preparata goes further and broader than his predecessors and does so in a style that keeps one engaged and eager to learn more.

This book is incredible! So dense with vital information and so well supported~ this changes the way I have always thought about this era of history. The world is never so simple as the good guys and the bad guys and this book contains the proof for that leading up to WW2. I'm really hard to convince along these lines, but this book has blown me away. I'm a believer.

Are you interested in the political climate of the War on Terrorism? If you read Noam Chomsky and study his analysis of the U.S. role in recent history then Guido Preparata's "Conjuring Hitler" is a must read because it will eco the voice of intellectual dissidence.

This author re-sets the political stage of the 1930's to expose the real magician behind the smoke and hand trick, American's history books call the victory of WWII. If you can not imagine anything worse then Hitler it is because it is taboo to ask- who could be worse then a Nazi? This book is loaded with the keys for doors our education and culture does not encourage to be opened.

Allow yourself the temptation of cracking open the dictionary, or google searching here and there. Often I find reading history and economics a panacea for insomnia but the opposite is true here. Once I started reading "Conjuring Hitler" I found it difficult to put it down. This author rewards the reader with his own style which is an added bonus for anyone interested in the relationship between history and current events. I encourage you to read the book.

I was skeptical at first buying this book as the author has a PhD in Political Economy and Economic History and I figured that he was 'brainwashed' by the system. I was wrong.

First of all the title of the book is a little misleading, Conjuring Hitler. There is very little about Hitler in the book, a paragraph here and there until near the end of the book. Contrast this to Montagu Norman, (past governor of the bank of England in the City of London Corporation) the author writes several pages about him.

This book traces the history of Germany from before WWI, between WWI and WWII and WWII with an eye on the behind the scenes of the financing and re-armament of Germany. The treaty of Versailles and the Dawes plan are also covered. The author, Guido Giacomo Preparata does a skillful job at following the money trail to the Anglo-American oligarchy who use the worlds banking system (he calls it the 'Grid') to create wars and mold future events for their liking, basically "Perfidious Albion" using balance of power and divide & conquer to continue the 'hidden' British Empire.

Conjuring Hitler should be read by all historians and conspiracy buffs as Guido Giacomo Preparata does a masterful job proving that 'Britain and America made the Third Reich'.
