Format: Hardcover
This is a fascinating first-person account from a German industrialist, covering the critical period between WWI and WWII, published in 1941 after Thyssen left Germany.

Despite its limitations, this material is very illuminating and gives Thyssen's version of his motives for giving substantial financial support, early, to the NSDAP (Nazi Party). After Thyssen's description of the episode of what happened to him and his father during the WWI-era, it is not so surprising. Thyssen's money was probably critical to the early successes of the NSDAP.

Thyssen describes his meetings with Hitler -- where and when -- and how the money was handed over (which Hitler would not take in person himself, directly).

Includes "the only known photo" of Thyssen with Hitler.

This is a valuable personal account for every student, researcher, or author of WWII history.

Highly recommended.

Format: Hardcover
I found this book to be a very interesting look at the inside pollitics of the third reich. Fritz tells us why he broke with the third Reich and fled Nazi Germany. Although he doesn't give much if any detail about the amounts of his donations or really any information concerning them. He mainly just tells why he became disinfranchised and finally decided to flee.

Format: Hardcover
Fritz Thyssen's book is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the reaction to the Nazi movement of the major German industrialists. As with so many memoirs written by those most directly responsible for helping Hitler come to power, one is always wondering which parts of Thyssen's story are fact and which are fiction. However, Thyssen does not shy away from accusing himself of being misled. He provides well-written context and background to his support for Hitler illuminates the terrible choices and moral dilemmas faced by German business leaders as they endeavored to find a way to restore economic health to Germany.
