this book offers the reader much information. while the title leads me to believe that the focus will be on finances of the nazi regime, it also provides, necessarily, a lot of historical information. the new financial information is limited (published in the 1980s) although it certainly includes much more information than, say, churchill's masterpiece written just 3 years after the war. i would have liked the book to offer some new material, copies of documents, etc. i appreciate that much documentation does not exist, but a search on the internet offers more information than is offered in this book. overall, i concede that it is well written, provides useful information, and, from what i could tell, it provides good information. i think that expanded analysis of the financial support of dulles, ford, usa, and great britain for hitler merit attention. very good work that i recommend.

Ever wondered about money trails. This is a very good/well researched book. No hiding behind the pillar on this one.

10 of 16 people found the following review helpful By H. Jonat Hecht on January 29, 2001
The author points out that one third of Germany by 1932 is on public assistance allowing for one meager meal a day, due to the Great Depression and the extreme burdens of Versailles. The book details the results of the 2. Presidential Election April 10, 1932 with a clear majority for Hindenburg. The Government of Prussia declared that they found evidence that the Nazis prepared for a putsch. Chancellor Bruening and General Groener ,Minister of interior declared the SA , SS and Hitler youth banned. The Social Democrats and trade unions supported banning the Nazi activities and President Hindenburg signed the decree, which officially disolved the uniformed Nazis. Nazis urged resistance and continued underground. These uniformed Nazi groups had 400.000 men. The German army had 100.000 men, which was all Germany was allowed to have according to the Wilson Versailles "Peace" dictate ,which was never sanctioned by the USA . So the German army was outnumbered 4 to 1 by the Hitler troops. Now the following part is not mentioned in the book: July 20, 1932 Hitler troops came to Berlin and ousted by Military Coup the legitimate Social Democratic Prussian Government under Otto Braun . On July 20, 1944 , one of several attempts to oust the dictator Hitler and regain the legitimate government, failed. The leaders were hanged overnight. Otto Braun took refuge in Swizerland and after the war ended he asked the allies to help him restore the legitimate government, which was ousted by dictatorship in July 1932 . The allies were not interested in restoring legitimacy. Instead by the decrees of August 1945 in Potsdam and March 1947 cleared the way for the expulsion and ethnic cleansing of over 15 Million Eastern Germans, whose land was and to this day is illegally taken. Again Big Business made the policies.
