Got a little off track - going into a lot of detail of treatment of Jews and other non-desirables. But, really interesting info and helpful to understand how the world might have allowed this to happen. Profits ruled - no matter where it came from.
A bit disappointed as this is just excerpts from his other works save for the section on Henry Ford which pulls heavily from Neil Baldwin's Henry Ford and the Jews which is what I was planning on reading after this. If you aren't familiar with Black's other texts and don't have the time to invest in his lengthy (and brilliant) studies then this is a perfect book to open your eyes to some very deserving subjects. A one night read. Oh, and $20 is far too much for this book.
This book could be a bit tedious at times, but overall a good read for someone who wants a shortcut from Edwin Black's other mighty books. This recounts how American businessmen were big players during the holocaust. This should be a must-read in all high schools across the nation.
I was surprised to learn just how involved many of America's top companies were in supporting Hitler and Nazi Germany. I found this book to be insightful and easy to read. It provides a good overview of the connections between companies such as Ford Motors, IBM, and General Motors and the Third Reich.
