'Sutton comes to conclusions that are uncomfortable for many businessmen and economists. For this reason his work tends to be either dismissed out of hand as extremeA" or, more often, simply ignored.' - Richard Pipes, Baird Professor Emeritus of History, Harvard University (quoted from Survival Is Not Enough: Soviet Realities and America's Future)
From the Inside Flap
`The contribution made by American capitalism to German war preparations can only be described as phenomenal. It was certainly crucial to German military capabilities...
Not only was an influential sector of American business aware of the nature of Naziism, but for its own purposes aided Naziism wherever possible (and profitable) - with full knowledge that the probable outcome would be war involving Europe and the United States.'
Penetrating a cloak of falsehood, deception and duplicity, Professor Antony C. Sutton reveals one of the most remarkable but unreported facts of the Second World War: that key Wall Street banks and American businesses supported Hitler's rise to power by financing and trading with Nazi Germany. Carefully tracing this closely guarded secret through original documents and eyewitness accounts, Sutton comes to the unsavoury conclusion that the catastrophic Second World War was extremely profitable for a select group of financial insiders. He presents a thoroughly documented account of the role played by J.P. Morgan, T.W. Lamont, the Rockefeller interests, General Electric Company, Standard Oil, National City Bank, Chase and Manhattan banks, Kuhn, Loeb and Company, General Motors, the Ford Motor Company, and scores of others in helping to prepare the bloodiest, most destructive war in history.
This classic study, first published in 1976 - the third volume of a trilogy - is reproduced here in its original form. (The other volumes in the series study the 1917 Lenin-Trotsky Revolution in Russia and the 1933 election of Franklin D. Roosevelt in the United States.)

view of history are often not so careful about checking the accuracy of the content.
There are apparently some errors in Wall Street and the rise of Hitler.
I use for this argument comments made by an Australian gentleman in a discussion group when debating with an enthusiastic supporter of Sutton
The discussion about the transfer of licence for artificial gasoline is confusing.
The statement that Opel and Ford were the two largest tank producers ought to be referring to trucks.
The following companies made tanks:
Kruppe-Gruson,Vomag, Niebelungenwerke (Panzer IV),M.A.N, Diamler-Benz, M.N.H, Henschel (Panther), Henschel again and Wegmann (Tiger)
The percentage given for USAs contribution of artificial gasoline to the nazi regime is overstated.
Sutton says 85% (5,5 out of a total of 6,5mil ton is made with the standard oil patent.
The correct percentage should be 35%(1,9 /5,4mil for 1944) or 45%(3,4/7,5mil for 1943)
The reason I mention these things is that I want concerned citizens to be aware of what kind of criticism you might encounter.
There is a need to continue and expand Suttons work.
Having read the 1star review on this book, I felt compelled to defend Professor Sutton's work and to perhaps suggest to the previous reviewer `I White' that they would do very well to read any of the following books by "REAL" historians.
In response to reviewer `I White's' comment that Professor Sutton's work smacked of `Conspiracy rules ok', I would wager next months mortgage payment that `I White' would find it difficult to dismiss the following essential reading list as a collection of conspiracy writers.
All of the following authors and books point, support, and provide evidence to the very same conclusions that Professor Sutton reaches in his book ..........Let the light shine in dark places!!!!!
All honorable men by James Stewart Martin
America's Second Crusade by William Henry Chamberlin
Perpetual War for Perpetual Peace by Harry Elmer Barnes
The Confessions of a Monopolist by Frederic Clems Howe
The Makers of War by Francis Neilson

Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler by Antony C.Read more ›
So, ignore the traditional theorists, open your mind, and explore some truly challenging thinking. Yes, read Antony Sutton, because he was one of those rare things: an independent mind who based his work on exhaustive research.
