Description - Hitler's Banker by John Weitz
A biography of Hjalmar Schacht, Chief Architect of the Nazi economy, whose rampant inflation financed the creation of the Europe's war machine in the devastated Weimar Republic. His meteoric success in the banking world is juxtaposed with the 20th-century history of Germany itself. Imprisoned by Hitler because of his anti-Nazi sentiments, Schacht was ultimately charged as a war criminal by the Allies. Exonerated of all charges at Nuremberg, Schacht lived to become a successful author and economic adviser to foreign nations, and a wealthy private banker.
