This book details the role some major American corporations--such as ITT, Standard Oil, Ford and GM--played in this sordid tale, in the pursuit of the almighty buck (even though it led to the deaths of many Europeans and American GIs. Were the guilty still alive, I would DEMAND they be summarily called to task for their crimes--indicted, and--once convicted--heavily sentenced. This book is a scholarly, but very readable treatment of the subject with fairly comprehensive documentation. It is actually a wonder that there is as much documentation as there is, considering that much of this was deeply "under wraps," until this researcher was able to crow-bar it out, via FOIA means. I consider that the negative reviewers on this page are either asleep or in league with the those who would prevent us from learning the truth.
Books like this one, and "The Real Lincoln," I have found to be enormously refreshing. It is on my list of Top Hundred Books, in my collection.Read more ›
Since I have taken up as a research project for myself, the investigation of World War II, from the philosophical perspective of `The Just War' notion or concept, I find myself being lead down many a strange alley.
After reading much of the conventional literature on the rise of Adolf Hitler, the obvious question occurred to me; Where did Adolf get his money? Nobody gains political power, EVER, ANYWHERE, without money. Anybody who thinks that even our soft spoken, country gentleman Jimmy Carter jumped out of a peanut patch, or Harry Truman out of a Haberdashery store in Missouri, or Abe Lincoln out of a log cabin, or Sun Yat-Sen out of a rice paddy, or even Fidel Castro out of a sugarcane field, is very naive to say the least. Without money, nobody goes nowhere in politics - anywhere in the world - nor throughout the annals of History. It just doesn't happen - ever.
So as an adjunct to discovering the moral righteousness or immoral iniquity of World War II, I have been led to investigating also, the financing of the Third Reich, and the personal backing for Adolf and his buddies. This is without any doubt a story yet to be written, of unbelievable proportions.
