Editorial Reviews

Review

'Sutton comes to conclusions that are uncomfortable for many businessmen and economists. For this reason his work tends to be either dismissed out of hand as extremeA" or, more often, simply ignored.' - Richard Pipes, Baird Professor Emeritus of History, Harvard University (quoted from Survival Is Not Enough: Soviet Realities and America's Future)

Customer Reviews

It is very interesting reading.
Frederick G. Widdowson
The selfish acts of business men, tempted by access to the levers of power, is as good an explanation as any.
Ross Nordeen
Quirky but well documented book.

Format: Paperback
This book demonstrates how "American" multinational corporations, who entered into cartel agreements with I.G. Farben, German General Electric, and a few other firms allowed the Nazis to greatly increase the ability of Germany to wage war. Without many of the processes developed by American firms being given to the Germans, there is NO WAY that the Nazis could have fought as long as as hard as they did.
Many Wall Street firms floated the loans to the German firms, allowing them to build their cartels which would later cost Americans and their allies many billions of dollars and millions of lives. The fact that there were Americans, some of them Jews like the Warburgs, on the Board of Directors of these same cartels that formed the Nazi war machine is mentioned. Sutton asks the obvious question. Why weren't the American members of these firms brought up on war crime charges like their German colleagues? I guess the obvious answer is that their American counterparts had influence in the conquering governments.
Sutton also shows how ITT(International Telephone and Telegraph), G.E., Ford, and Standard Oil had no problem supplying both sides of the war. International financiers, of course, had no problem floating loans to both sides either. I guess that this should come as no surprise. Businessmen are motivated by profits first and patriotism second, if at all.
This book is yet another demonstration of what Carroll Quigley meant by the close-knit ramifications of international financial capitalism. For critics of foreign aid and other such pracitces, here is another example of how it can come back to haunt the citizens of the lending country, while the elites laugh their way to the bank.

Format: Hardcover
Sutton makes that case that several Wall Street firms were deeply involved in financing the rise to power of the National Socialist German Workers Party (i.e., the Nazis) in pre-World War II Germany. Sutton shows that first, Wall Street financed the German cartels in the 1920's, second, that Wall Street indirectly financed Hitler and the Nazi Party, prior to their rise in power in Germany, third, that Wall Street firms profited from the build-up to war and the war itself, even after the U.S. got involved, and finally, that U.S. firms worked to cover up their complicity after the war.
This book is the third in a trilogy. The two other books chronicle Wall Street's involvement in the rise of FDR and the Bolshevik revolution in Russia. The anti-Semitism and Nazi sympathies of businessmen like Henry Ford is no secret, so it's surprising that this subject gets so little play. Given modern leftist thought on big business, one would think that they would leap at the chance to link Wall Street to the Nazis. The reason they don't is no doubt due to Sutton's larger effort at showing that Wall Street supported "corporate socialism" not only in Germany, but in Russia and the U.S. as well. Since leftists still idealize FDR and the brutal regime that arose to become the U.S.S.R., they probably prefer to forget about the businessmen who connect them all. Sutton himself is no anti-business left-winger, instead he is a conservative concerned with the actions of an "unelected power elite", controlling events/governments/societies behind the scenes, to the detriment of freedom everywhere.
It makes for rather dry reading, but Sutton goes into extensive details about the persons, funds and timelines that show the deep connection between certain American Big Businesses and the Nazis.

Format: Hardcover
This book is very detailed. So much so that it is easy to get lost in the facts. However, the detail is needed to support the subject.
Mr. Sutton leaves the reader very angry with the "powers to be" for sacrificing the lives of so many in WWII for the sake of money. The reader discovers most of the horrors of this war could have been avoided.
He makes the danger of the Council of Foreign Relations more real.
This is a must read for everyone, especially if you are a believer in the Constitution of the U.S.
Be sure to read Appendix A.
Jerry

This is one of those books that make you want to buy all of the books in the bibliography just because the information is so shocking you want to investigate it for yourself. It is very interesting reading. Now, whether all of the conclusions the author draws are correct or not I don't know yet, but I'm working on it.

When I served in the ccupation of Germany in the early fifties, I wondered why the massive building housing The V Corps of the US Army was such a prominent feature of Frankfurt. I soon discovered it to be the former I G Farben headquarters, apparently untouched by our bombing while all around, there was still the debris of war. The only other building in that plot of land was the US Army military chapel. Why also were there ESSO stations everywhere? So much for our close relationship with our former enemy. This book demonstrates the American-Third Reich commercial hookups.

The capitalist establishment financed and helped create the Soviet Union. This same establishment also financed Nazi Germany. The clash between these two financed systems gave birth to the world order that we have today.
Once again, Sutton has brilliantly revealed a great historical truth about betrayal, and about orchestrating conflicts that make money and reshape the world order!
