James Pool's powerful exposé, Who Financed Hitler: The Secret Funding of Hitler's Rise to Power, 1919-1933, was praised by The New Yorker as "one of the most useful and illuminating studies of Nazism" ever published. Now, James Pool discloses the shocking and often bizarre financial strategies and relationships that enabled Hitler to consolidate his power and perpetuate his reign of terror. Hitler and His Secret Partners at last tells the full, fascinating story of an amassed legacy that continues to make headlines with the recent emergence of Nazi accounts in Swiss banks. Included are these startling revelations:

  • Top German industrialists and financiers funded Hitler's regime -- and were rewarded with multibillion-dollar returns on their investments.

  • Hitler's foreign supporters included King Edward VIII; his companion, Wallis Simpson, who may have been a Nazi collaborator; and Joseph Kennedy, who gave tacit approval to Hitler's "Jewish policy."

  • Many of Germany's largest companies profited from the Holocaust. There is evidence that the concentration camps themselves were designed as sources of slave labor for German industry.

  • Adolf Hitler's private life was one of extravagance -- in which no expense was spared in the indulgence of his every whim, from the architectural to the sexual.

    A thoroughly documented account of a controversial subject, Hitler and His Secret Partners is the definitive study of the calculation, exploitation and greed at the heart of the Third Reich.

    Review:

    Orlando Sentinel Pool re-examine[s] the entire operation of the Third Reich -- including the Holocaust -- in economic terms....A persuasive argument that money, and not necessarily fanaticism and anti-Semitism, was at the heart of German ideology....

    Associated Press An excellent book.

    Anderson Independent-Mail (SC) For a concise, highly readable version of how World War II happened, it's hard to beat James Pool's Hitler and His Secret Partners....an excellent account of the road to war, the battles won and lost, and the fall of Nazi Germany....Pool...convey[s] these facts in a seamless narrative.

    About the Author:

He also interviewed Allied intelligence officers and surviving slave laborers who worked for German companies. He has BA and MA degrees from the University of Cincinnati. Mr. Pool is also the author of Who Financed Hitler: The Secret Funding of Hitler's Rise to Power, 1919-1933, now completely revised and updated, and available in trade paperback from Pocket Books.
