    One thought on “Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler”

    1. This is probably one of the most eye opening books I've ever come across. Anthony Sutton painstakingly presents financial documents from the vaults of the Third Reich as well as the United States. He proves, without theorizing, that factions within America's financial elite, including people of Jewish descent, funded Adolf Hitler. Brown Brothers Harriman Bank was deeply involved, whose president at the time was Prescott Sheldon Bush, George H.W.'s father and George W's grandfather.Explosive and [...]

    2. There's a copy on shelf at our library and a copy on-line here:modernhistoryproject/mhp?AIt's amazing to me that so much of what I thought was FICTION in Gravity's Rainbow is documented here3 years later.And a 41st anniversary re-cognition: nytimes/2014/11/23/boo

    3. Doing business with Hitler's Germany8 October 2011 In a sense this book is little more than a conspiracy theory trying to link Wall Street with the rise of Nazi Germany. I shouldn't really say that it is a conspiracy because it is true. Wall Street was in with Hitler's rise hand and fist, and one of the main reasons is that Hitler was their kind of guy and they were also hoping that Hitler would act as a counter balance against the rise of Communism in Russia. However the problem is that Hitler [...]

    4. Have you ever heard of "Putzi" Hanfstaengl? He's the American-born Harvard grad bosom chum of der Fuhrer who helped his pal hide out on the night of the Beer Hall Putsch and possibly opened the back door of the Reichstag so the brownshirts could set it ablaze. He's one of the interesting people featured in Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler. Apparently Putzi, known to lunch with FDR at the Harvard club in Manhattan, became gutfreunds with Hitler in the 1920s. Hitler was a big fan of Putzi's old [...]

    5. I found this book by Sutton to be a mixed bag of interesting speculations and misleading semi-true assertions (at times sparsely sourced at that) and I suspect many readers have drawn even more radical conclusions than the book implies.Sutton points the finger at a variety of alleged Hitler financiers but what he neglects to inform the reader is that many of the wealthy industrialists and aristocrats mainly financed the Center party (Catholics) and the nationalists (royalists) and to a much less [...]

    6. This one is sure to bum out those that see Hitler as some sort of great white hope with pure clear cut motivations and devoid of any Jewish influence, as well as brainwashed "patriotic" Americans that only see America as the good guys or Jews that fail to admit the deviousness of high level Jews in the business and banking world. Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler documents how American Wall Street Bankers and Corporations funded Hitler and made money aiding the German war effort. To list a few [...]

    7. I was stunned and terrified after the first chapter. While I would prefer to think that Antony C. Sutton's claims are unfounded assertions, his education and background suggest otherwise. Most of the claims made by this historian are fully footnoted and include copies of bank drafts. While I was aware that I.G. Farben contributed largely to the Nazis, I did not know that they had an American subsidiary. While I knew that Henry and Edsel Ford contributed, I did not know that they established a fa [...]

    8. A book that can elicit a daylong episode of pondering or outright disgust. The evidence is arranged neatly (though sometimes redundantly) and the final chapter is a knockout blow of epic proportions. It is funny how conditioned we are as a society to view "conspiracy" theorists as lunatics with mental health issues. While I found some of the conclusions farfetched, none of the claims seemed entirely baseless.

    9. Я уже не удивляюсь тому, что американские финансисты поддерживали Гитлера вплоть до 1944 года

    10. Professor Sutton proves that World War II was not only well planned, it was also immensely profitable for a small minority of Wall Street insiders. Professor Sutton provides original documents and eyewitness accounts of the roles played by J.P. Morgan, Henry Ford, Rockefeller interests, and General Electric to name a few of the financial elite that the author proves not only profited and funded Nazism but even created the German Cartel System in the early 1920s that gave rise to giants such as I [...]

    11. Antony Sutton doesn't mess around. He simply has rock solid documentary evidence which he presents in the proper fashion. His case is systematically, intelligently, and perfectly laid out. There is no doubt; Brown Brothers Harriman and other American banks funded the Nazis. Now do you really think that today's big banks are any different? Sutton's work brings people out of Plato's cave. I can't wait to read all his other books. There is simply no greater exposé author. For those of you out ther [...]

    12. Disclaimer to say that I'm really not qualified to judge the reliability and academic merit of this book, nor was I sufficiently motivated to do further research. Found this in some free bin several years ago and it's been lying around the house ever since, so I figured I should probably give it a shot. Interesting thesis. I have no doubt that lots of influential and moneyed Americans did business with Hitler to make profit. But the writing is super dry and after a while it felt too much like be [...]
