5.0 out of 5 stars Love it 18 Nov 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This book contains an important lesson for our times: quick profits and national security are sometimes compatible and sometimes conflicting objectives, and it is not always easy to determine which they may be at a given time -- though, viewed though the absolutist viewpoint through which US participation in WWII is now generally recalled, the actions and behavior outlined in this book strike one as genteel treason by respectable people and companies which was apparently accommodated by the government, with one shocking expose following another. It is instructive even as there have been inquiries on who armed Iraq -- and as there is an ongoing national security debate on technology export policy -- to note that US trade with the Axis was not completely cut off even after Pearl Harbor. For those who might be inclined to think that it is obvious that there are some things the US would never sell to certain other countries so as not to arm its potential enemies, they should think again; there have been too many situations where the "obvious" has been turned on its head. The book imparts a crucial and not widely understood civics lesson, especially in using the US's "good war" as a paradigm.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Book ! 19 April 2002
By Melvin Hunt - Published on Amazon.com
This is a book that gives you insight into some of America's
corporation that actually traded with the Nazis during World War II.You are given actual names of some powers in American industry
who did business with Nazi Germany during the war. Some of the biggest corporations in the Unites States profited due to "Trading With The Enemy".Some of the companies that are named in this book are still in operation today.This is a good history
book that serves as an exposure of American business. This is
definitely a very good read. It might change your outlook on
American history.

3.0 out of 5 stars Detailed 30 Jan 1999
By puffinswan - Published on Amazon.com
Excruciatingly detailed account of the ugly business of war. Frightening and meticulously researched, this book is not easy reading. I found it somewhat dull because of the writing style, but for those interested in WW2 or for those who lived through I would still recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the most important books of our century 3 Dec 1997
By obler@aspentec.com - Published on Amazon.com
A necessary companion to "Gravity's Rainbow", this is the historical truth behind Pynchon's farce. The same companies that brought us the Allende assasination and Southeast Asian heroin, are here seen trading oil, munitions, and intelligence on behalf of the alleged enemy, World Fascism. The links between these Amerikan Nazis and the origins of McCarthyism, the CIA, and the Cold War are especially instructive. If you like this book, try the easier to find "The Politics of Heroin", Alfred McCoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent 27 May 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Anyone following current news should read this book. Most Americans are not aware of the technology we peddle overseas that gets shot back at us. This book reveals that there is some history of doing this.
