The House of Rothschild: Volume 2: The World's Banker: 1849-1999 Paperback – September 1, 2000
"Hitler's Forgotten Children" by Ingrid von Oelhafen
The Lebensborn program abducted as many as half a million children from across Europe. Through a process called Germanization, they were to become the next generation of the Aryan master race in the second phase of the Final Solution. Hitler's Forgotten Children is both a harrowing personal memoir and a devastating investigation into the awful crimes and monstrous scope of the Lebensborn program. Learn more | See related books

Until the 1920s, Ferguson demonstrates, there was almost no economic, technological, or political development in Europe in which the House of Rothschild did not play some role. The rise of nationalist and national socialist movements and of official anti-Semitism, coupled with the rise in the Jazz Age of a new generation of Rothschilds that cared more for the good life than for the hard work of maintaining their holdings, led to a substantial decline in the family's authority and wealth. But even today, as Ferguson writes in this richly detailed but eminently readable history, the Rothschilds figure in European finance, continuing a legacy that Ferguson's two volumes trace from the Middle Ages to the new millennium. --Gregory McNamee --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Ferguson states that the Rothschilds missed putting their stamp on the USA. He doesn't cover their American agents who were operating before the Civil War, nor their rescue of the Bank of England and subsequent granting of Bank of England shares.
A shame this is not the real story. Shame on the author for being "paid off".
My suspicion is that this book is aimed as the business economics degree market and not at the popular reader, which is me.
