Military Review

Lend-Lease for Hitler

64
The traditional historiography of World War II paints a picture in which the United States fought valiantly against Germany and its allies, throwing enormous strength and resources against the enemy. However, everything was not quite so: American moneybags and their loyal friends in the US government for a long time could not forget their faithful pre-war ally - Hitler.


While the American soldiers were gallantly dying in Sicily and on the beaches of Normandy, spare parts and the latest technologies flowed into the hands of the Nazis from the United States.

In 1931, the American journalist Annette Anton from Detroit News interviewed the new leader of Germany, Adolf Hitler. A reporter noted a portrait of the main American car merchant, Henry Ford, above the desk of the chief Nazi. In response to Anneta’s surprise, Hitler sincerely said: “I consider Henry Ford to be my inspiration.”

Ford was not by chance among the idols of the Fuhrer. It was thanks to Ford, as well as a number of the largest US moneybags, that there was a hidden increase in the military potential of Germany. In the prewar years, the economy of the Reich grew by leaps and bounds.

Probably the most typical representative of American business, and at the same time, a great friend of Hitler can be called Henry Ford, the eldest. Being one of the main tycoons of the American market, Henry Ford provided serious financial support to the NSDAP. In gratitude, the Führer not only hung his portrait in his Munich residence, but also wrote with admiration about Ford in his little book, My Struggle. In response, Ford annually congratulated "his German friend" on his birthday, while giving him a "gift" worth 50 000 Reichsmarks.

Even before the start of the war, the Nazis received 65 thousands of trucks from Ford offices in Germany, Belgium and France. In addition, the Ford subsidiary in Switzerland has repaired thousands of German trucks. He repaired the German motor transport and the Swiss branch of another American auto giant General Motors, which concurrently was the largest contributor to the German auto concern Opel, successfully cooperating with it throughout the war and receiving fair dividends. But Ford was out of competition!

According to the American military historian Henry Schneider, Ford helped the Germans in obtaining rubber, vital for German industry. Not only this, until the very beginning of World War II, the owner of the auto giant USA supplied Hitler with military equipment, for which the Fuhrer awarded the hero of the Third Reich to foreigners, the Great Cross of the German Eagle, in honor of Ford's 75 anniversary. The German consul even made a trip to Detroit to personally hang up the Golden Cross with a swastika on the chest of the automaker. Ford was delighted with this award. The grand dinner party organized on the anniversary day - 30 July 1938, was attended by over 1500 richest Detroiters.

Even with the outbreak of World War II, Ford did not interrupt cooperation with the Nazis. In 1940, Ford refused to assemble engines for planes in England, which was at war with Germany, while in the French city of Poissy, its new plant began to produce aircraft engines, trucks and cars for the Hitler Army, which entered the Wehrmacht's arsenal. And after 1941, the Ford branch in occupied France continued to produce trucks for the Wehrmacht, and its other branch, in Algeria, supplied Hitler's General Rommel with trucks and armored cars. Even in April 1943, when the Soviet Union was engaged in bloody battles with the Nazis, Ford's French branches worked exclusively for Germany's benefit. Cargo "five-ton" and passenger "Fords" were the main army transport of the Wehrmacht. The main issue for the corporation was the profit that it tried to get at any cost. At the end of the war aviation the Allies bombed the Poissy factory, but Ford did not touch the same factory in Cologne, Germany, although almost the entire old city was destroyed. What is noteworthy, after the war, the Ford company, like its powerful rival General Motors, thanks to the efforts of major lawyers, got the US government to receive compensation "for damage to their property in enemy territory."

Ford was far from the only American corporation that had a hand in creating the German military machine. By the time of the outbreak of World War II, the cumulative contributions of American corporations to their German branches and representative offices were about 800 million dollars. Ford's investment is 17,5 million, Standard Oil of New Jersey (now existing under Exxon) - 120 million, General Motors - 35 million, ITT - 30 million.

For example, American companies supplied thousands of aircraft engines for the Reich aviation and, most importantly, licenses for their production. For example, the BMW Hornet engines that powered the Junkers-52, the most popular transport aircraft in Germany, were manufactured under license from the American company Prat & Whitney.

General Motors in Germany belonged to Opel. The factories of this company stamped Reich armored vehicles, as well as almost 50% of Junkers-88 bomber power units. In 1943, the German branch of General Motors developed and began producing engines for the Messerschmitt-262 - the first Luftwaffe fighter jet.

IBM has managed to triple its capital during World War II. Much of it was obtained through cooperation with Hitler. The counting machines supplied through the German branch allowed the Nazis to quickly conduct a census of the population of the occupied countries and determine the number of persons to be arrested (the equipment helped to identify even those Jews who had already carefully concealed their origin for several generations). IBM supplied many departments of the Reich with its calculating machines, spare parts for them and special paper, including concentration camps.

Of course, in words, the US government opposed the collusion of American corporations with the Nazis. For example, during the war, the law “Trading with the enemy act” was enacted, which provided for severe punitive measures for such cooperation. But in fact, numerous lobbyists, sent by big-nosed parties to all echelons of power, helped to avoid any obstacles.

American lawyer James Martin, speaking among others against the practice of economic cooperation with the enemy, in his book “The Fellowship of Business” wrote: “In Germany, we were hampered not by German, but by American businessmen. Those who interfered with us acted from the United States, but did not act openly. We were not hampered by any law approved by Congress, not by an order of the President of the United States, or by a decision of the president or any member of the cabinet to change the political course. In short, the “government” did not formally bother us. But the force that hindered us, as is perfectly clear, held in their hands those levers with the help of which governments usually act. In the face of growing economic power, governments are relatively powerless, and this, of course, is not news».

Even after Germany declared war on the United States, a number of major American companies, with the full connivance of the White House, continued to cooperate with Hitler!

Oil Corporation Standard Oil of New Jersey (Exxon) supplied the Nazis with gasoline and lubricants for 20 million dollars. Until the landing of American troops in France, the tanker fleet of "neutral" Spain worked almost exclusively for the needs of the Wehrmacht, supplying it with American "black gold", formally intended for Madrid. Even in the first months of 1944, Germany re-exported 48 thousand tons of oil from Spain every month from Spain.

The same thing happened with another strategic raw material - rubber. At a time when the States were unable to supply their own army with raw materials, particularly synthetic rubber, Standard Oil made a deal with Nazi Germany, according to which the company pledged to supply regular supplies of raw materials, fuel and rubber overseas to Germany, Italy and Austria. As a result, the US army was left with nothing - the supply of the necessary raw materials were painted by the Rockefeller clan 8 years in advance. When the United States entered the Second World War, the American government was forced to negotiate with a fake British office that sold rubber and other necessary resources purchased from German concerns, which in turn were bought from Rockefeller. Thus, when Americans acquired their own raw materials through third parties, Standard Oil received super-profits from both sides.

In 1942, a small scandal broke out in the United States: Standard Oil deliberately reduced methanol supplies for the US Army. Methanol was used to produce lubricants based on natural gas (necessary for aviation when flying at high altitudes), acetic acid (a component of explosives), and synthetic rubber. Finally, in 1943, Rockefellers sold 25 thousand tons of ammonium sulfate (explosive component) and 10 thousand tons of cotton to occupied France, despite the fact that the shortage of these goods was acutely felt in the United States.

And also synthetic rubber and, of course, many spare parts for the aviation and automotive industries, tanks. Of particular value were 1100 tons of tungsten obtained during the war by Germany from the United States. As you know, tungsten was a key component in the production of anti-tank shells and the electronics industry.

Dark история was associated with SKF, the world's largest manufacturer of ball bearings. While giant shipments of bearings (over 600 annually) were shipped across South America to Nazi clients, the Curtiss-Wright aviation corporation, which produced engines for the US Air Force, for a long time did not receive the coveted steel balls from SKF at all. Prat & Whitney, another aircraft engine manufacturer, has also been forced to cut production due to disruptions in bearing supplies from SKF. Due to worn-out parts, planes suffered accidents, people died, some of the new machines could not take off at all, but SKF was only interested in profit, and the Germans paid more.

When 14 in October 1943 was commanded by General Henry Arnold, US Army Aviation Commander, to make an air raid on SKF ball bearing plant in Schweinfurt, Germany, the enemy somehow heard about the operation and managed to prepare the defense, knocking down American aircraft as a result of 60. October 19 Arnold bluntly told the London News Chronicle: "They would not have been able to organize the defense if they had not been warned in advance." Who warned the German branch, I think, to explain too.

Helped American corporations Reich and with military developments. In the midst of the war, the specialists of the US-controlled multinational telephone corporation International Telephone Telegraph worked hand in hand with German colleagues in Switzerland, having an excellent roof from the German intelligence services. One of the shareholders of ITT was Walter Schellenberg, chief of political intelligence of the Security Service. And the head of ITT, Colonel Sostenes Ben, at the height of the war, assisted the Nazis in improving the guided bombs. With the help of such bombs, the Germans barbarously destroyed London, sank and damaged many ships, among which, ironically, were American, such as the American cruiser Savannah.

When the Reichsbank President and Hitler's Minister of Economy Yalmar Schacht were tried at the Nuremberg trials, he recalled Opel’s connections with General Motors and suggested that the captains of the American business should be put on trial. Of course, the proposal was not accepted.

        And they will ban RT broadcasting in interested countries. Now, if you do it in the form of a good feature film, and show this cooperation in passing, indirectly. It was possible to capture some American work in the film "Stalingrad", for example, to show, but without fanaticism, as well as to point the camera at the nameplate.

      Wonderful article! Another confirmation that there is not the slightest difference to Amersky scum on what to profit from. The USA was formed by thieves and scum and waiting for the laws of genetics to fail simply naively. Even now they have the main income from wars, which they themselves unleash.
      The only force that could somehow keep them in the stall was the USSR!
      And what is Russia’s choice? Either we become force, or we will not be.
      And in the place of Putin, I would more actively use economic sanctions against the United States. For them, losing money is the worst!

There were only two of them in the entire Western world who were against, Ford and Napoleon. Read the contemporaries of those years.

Now, in terms of personalities, Napoleon, let's say, is also a person with an unclear origin. but they say about Ford that the money involved in his enterprise also has, let's say, not Aryan origin, can you refute?

    A gang of Masons (and Jews), which included the leaders of the above-mentioned corporations, brought Hitler to power (with the same gang), organized a German war machine, organized the Second World War. One of the acts of this staging was the so-called Holocaust.

    And in the USSR, this scum would not even be shot, but hanged. For execution is too honorable an execution for such degenerates of the human race, who have neither honor nor conscience. If we are talking about subhuman and inhuman, these terms apply to the bigwigs of Anglo-Saxon big business.

    With regards to Rockefeller itself, it’s high time for Jews to understand that it is he who is the main enemy of the Jewish people. Not a single psychopath who hates Jews has done so much harm and suffering to the Jews themselves as this unprincipled bankster and his descendants. Rockefellers have lost all moral and even ethnic right to call themselves Jews. They cannot be called people either - their souls have long been killed by dirty green paper, which they themselves print and how much in vain. Disgusting ghouls that only an aspen stake will help.

    In 1931, the American journalist Annette Anton of the Detroit News interviewed Germany’s new leader Adolf Hitler.

    Hmm, "Germany's new leader in 1931"?
    In April, 1925, Hitler renounced Austrian citizenship and until February 1932 was stateless.
    In February 1932, Hitler decided to run for the German Reich Presidential election. On February 25, the Minister of the Interior of Braunschweig appointed him to the position of attaché at the Braunschweig office in Berlin. This did not impose any official duties on Hitler, but automatically granted German citizenship and allowed them to participate in elections. Hitler took lessons in oratory and acting from opera singer Paul Devrient, the Nazis organized a grand propaganda campaign, in particular, Hitler became the first German politician to make campaign trips by plane. In the first round of March 13, Paul von Hindenburg scored 49,6% of the vote, and Hitler took second place with 30,1%. On the 10 of April, in a second vote, Hindenburg scored 53%, and Hitler scored 36,8%. The third place was taken both times by the communist Telman.
    On 30 on January 1933, President Hindenburg appointed Hitler the Chancellor (head of government) instead of Kurt von Schleicher.
    On 2 on August 1934, President Hindenburg died. According to the results of a plebiscite held in mid-August, the presidency was abolished, and the presidential powers of the head of state were transferred to Hitler as the “Führer and Reichskanzler” (Führer und Reichskanzler). These actions have been approved by 84,6% of the electorate. Thus, Hitler also became the Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, whose soldiers and officers now swore personally to him.
    Well, in the 1931 year, Hitler was the leader (Fuhrer) of the National Socialist German Workers Party (1921 — 1945).

    Duc, after all, only business, nothing personal! Money is carried where they work, where there is a result. For example, a fuse for German grenades was issued under an English patent and a license. And under the terms of a patent agreement, for each enemy killed by a grenade (including an Englishman ) the copyright holder (it seems Vickers) was paid a bonus of 5 pounds by the German side - which was strictly observed even during the war ... Yes, you can talk about it endlessly, the Germans had only coal and iron from their resources ... Everything else received from abroad ... You yourself would have thought how they fought so much without their oil.

    Henry Ford was one of the few Americans who can be called socialists
    unlike the following scum of mankind:
    Rothschild, Rockfelier, J.P. Morgan, Montague Norman, Hialmar Schacht, John Foster Dulles .... listing all of these bugs does not make sense
    not idealizing Ford, I want to say that his ideas of socializing society did not let many Saxo-Jewish bankers sleep at night

        God did not deprive physicians of health is not a frequent guest
        but I believe that medicine, as well as education, should be free (paid by the state from taxes of both sick and healthy), in this I see social justice, I am a socialist
        I consider shooting at weddings in settlements (despite the traditions of other nations) not acceptable, am I a nationalist?
        if the situation escalates, dividing the country into Wahhabis and supporters of Russian unity, I will be in the ranks of the second
        when Ford started his social program in the COURT they made it clear that doing this is not worth it
        what can i say not addressed to those socialists ....
        however, his fords in Lend-Lease fought against fascism, so he corrected his karma a bit to draw a portrait of the devil from him, this is clearly a bust IMHO there are enough bastards without him

      all right. But calling Ford a socialist you are a little disingenuous. He was a convinced Nazi and is one of the founders of Fascism as a political trend. Like Karl Marx.
      By the way, the article is silent about the fact that Hitler Ford had to fight against the entire US state machine in his support. and he could have been imprisoned if he had not refused it after Germany declared the US war (which of course was Hitler’s strategic mistake). Vobschem article is another brainless propaganda. another agitprop product.

    Between Germany and the USSR there was also not only economic, but also close military-technical cooperation. Many senior Wehrmacht officers, such as Guderian, studied in the USSR. The foundations of the German Air Force, armored forces, and airborne forces were laid in the USSR.

      Guderian did not study, but inspected the Kazan tank school. Again the legs of the book "The Fascist Sword Forged in the USSR" came out. The generals and officers of Germany indicated in this book as coming to study, were in fact on short-term missions, were military observers at military maneuvers in the USSR.

        For reference: the statement that G. Guderian was inspected at a tank school near Kazan has not yet been confirmed. These are common speculations until documents are found to confirm this fact (refuting it).

    The United States was enriched by the Second World War, during which they had close economic ties with Hitler, of course, with us. naturally on very favorable terms. Our country is still paying it under Lend-Lease, at least until the death of the Kursk - there is information that after its death they wrote off part of the debt. The United States lost about 350 soldiers in World War II, while our country lost at least 000 million, not counting material losses. And after that, the amers have enough conscience and audacity to say that they made the main contribution to the victory over Germany. Trying to rewrite history. There is no limit to cynicism.

    As the saying goes, “both yours and ours.” That's thanks to the 2 world wars, the Americans became a superpower. Now they have already started talking about their exclusivity, like the Germans before the war. If it were not for Russia's nuclear arsenal, they would have arranged the third world long ago.

    By the way, there is such a work of Our Soviet classic Boris (Kompanov-) Polevoy - "These four years", and so even from this work (it is enough to read only the part related to the Nuremberg trials) it can be concluded that those who were hanged were the famous film Gaidai "Diamond Hand" expressed the main smuggler ..... the deceased - I knew too much. because otherwise it is absolutely inexplicable why such characters and their enterprises as Porsche, Krupp, Faber Castle and even the daddy of the legendary fashion designer Hugo Boss who went to Schickelgruber's personal friends, and some of them, such as Faber and Krupp, were not even sponsored together with others, and why the legendary gray general-man who founded the BRD Reinhard Gehlen, by the way the ideologist and one of the main developers of the Barbarossa plan (though the name justified itself very well, since upon returning from the crusade, this character was drowned) was also not executed, etc. etc.
    But what suggests itself in this regard is the analogy with 1917 and the years preceding it, remember how such experts as Svanidze and other bastards shake and emanate with hatred of saliva splashing, yapping that it is only those who suffer from conspiracy theories and who are deceived by propaganda that they can think that the most that they eat (shit Britons and Americans - or rather their "elite" in the face of banking houses) took part, or rather were the main sponsors and driving force of 1917, by the way, too, here is the paradox again, the successful war between Russia and Germany, despite the fact that both of them began to break out into leaders as industrial powers, and this, as they say, was clearly not part of the plans of the Anglo-Saxons.
    So it turns out that the main provocateurs and culprits of the many victims both from Russia and Germany are the same personalities, and this We (Russia and Germany) should have condemned and hanged this worldwide bastard, and also before and claim material compensation from them for all their atrocities.

    It somehow reminds me of Russia, where in the First World War surplus appropriation was introduced and the "holy" queen - the martyr drove grain by train through third countries from Russia to Germany. Rasputin's secretary, a certain Simonovich, was in charge of the organization of supplies. It was he and his fellow believers who were organizing supplies. They also say that they do not drink blood ...))

    Hitler was brought to power by England and the United States. They gave him money, then played along, surrendered Austria, Czechoslovakia and Poland. They did all this in order to set Germany against the USSR.
    This is well written in N. Starikov's book "Who made Hitler attack Stalin"

    http://nstarikov.ru/books/159

    This book is about those who made this terrible war possible. It is about those who gave Hitler and his party money. She is about those who helped them come to power. It is about those who gave them weapons, new territories and self-confidence. Who has every right to sit in the dock and share with the leaders of fascist Germany responsibility for their unparalleled crimes.
    This book will tell you about the true creators and inspirers of the most terrible war in human history.

    Yeah! For the sake of enrichment and power, millions of victims do not count. It turned out especially well among the Zionists. They earned money and got their own state. 6 exterminated fellow tribesmen are already ideological capital after the war.

    Wonderful article! Another confirmation that there is not the slightest difference to Amersky scum on what to profit from. The USA was formed by thieves and scum and waiting for the laws of genetics to fail simply naively. Even now they have the main income from wars, which they themselves unleash.
    The only force that could somehow keep them in the stall was the USSR!
    And what is Russia’s choice? Either we become force, or we will not be.
    And in the place of Putin, I would more actively use economic sanctions against the United States. For them, losing money is the worst!
    They still bring "Bush's legs" to us ...?


    The USSR is the most terrible state that was built on this planet. Nature itself has destroyed this muck. Rejoice, more such a miracle-yudo will NEVER appear.
    If you guys knew what kind of people are at the helm of power in our country and how they manage it, you would either drink too much or go crazy.
    Is Henry Ford a dangerous villain? Recall who helped train the German tank generals? Who divided Europe in half?
    Well, what can I say about Henry Ford, just reading a glimpse of his work? He was rather skeptical and derisive about the ideas of implementing projects of "utopias". He very coolly, calmly and thoughtfully approached the consequences of the revolution in the Russian Empire. He was not an ardent anti-Semite, as many here think. That is, he did not advocate their total destruction. He simply did not see in the Jews the harbingers of a "bright future" and did not consider them the crown of evolution, to put it mildly)))). As it will not surprise many - he was one of the supporters of the formation of a purely Jewish state - "Israel".
    He considered that a Jew in his own country would acquire the harmony and humanity that he had so long lost, and would stop bothering everyone else with his communist-Christian neurosis-utopias.
    Whether he was wise or not, our great-grandchildren will tell us the next world.
