5.0 out of 5 stars Thorough, succinct, fascinating, 22 Mar. 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Who Financed Hitler: The Secret Funding of Hitler's Rise to Power, 1919-1933 (Paperback)
In accordance with the title, this book tells pretty much all that is now known about "Who Financed Hitler." Most of us are familiar with the rich women who mothered and gave money to Hitler. We've long suspected that at some point Henry Ford financed a portion of Hitler's anti-Semitic fight. Thyssen has long admitted (and repented) having given large sums to Hitler, and of getting other industrialists to do the same. But not many of us were aware that Mussolini gave early financial contributions to his German side-kick. Nor did we realize that a British banker contributed funds to the Nazi party. And how many of us perceived that Hitler also got contributions from people in France, Austria, Hungary, Switzerland, Finland, and Czecho-Slovakia, as well as other countries? However, as fascinating as all this is, the strength of Mr. Pool's book lies in his ability to take complex situations and condense them into thorough, accurate, and understandable reading. Although I have read more than 150 books on Hitler, I found Pool's reporting to have clarified several points on which I was still fuzzy. If you can read only one book about Hitler's early political years, this would be a good choice. If you've read many books on those early years, you will still want to add this one to your repertoire.
