Top customer reviews
This book provides an excellent review of how the Krupp family got into the armaments industry and how they perfected the arms race by pitting one country against the other with each new generation of canons. The breadth of the Krupp operations has been surpassed by that of the Koch brothers, but the Krupp family paved the way and doubtless inspired many other brigands of industry.
I'd recommend it to anybody who is interested in where the 4 circles on the Audi automobile originated. It is a long, very detailed history, beautifully written.
