Description

HITLER AND HIS SECRET PARTNERS reveals that the greatest tragedy of the twentieth century was driven in large part by economics - by the desire to hoard wealth as well as power. Those who reaped the rewards - whether peasant, prince or politician - share equally in the criminal consequences of Nazism. Meticulously researched and thoroughly documented, this remarkable and monumental volume is sure to provoke controversy and have a substantial impact for decades to come. Here for the first time, is the full story of the financial calculation, exploitation, and greed at the core of the Third Reich, and of an amassed legacy that continues to make headlines with the recent emergence of Nazi accounts in Swiss banks. Discover the explosive truth about the men and women who provided Hitler with money and moral support - and what they received in return.
