4.0 out of 5 stars Some errors in Suttons book, 8 May 2013
This review is from: Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler: The Astonishing True Story of the American Financiers Who Bankrolled the Nazis (Paperback)
I consider Sutton to have contributed very significantly but I know that people who are interested in this kind of alternative
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.
