Car wars: Doing business with the NazisGermany’s glorious militaristic destiny, according to Hitler, was dependent on a mass, four-wheeled mobilization. General Motors was eager to help put that dream into motion.
What did GM know – and when?General Motors’ coldly calculating and elitist president Alfred P. Sloan hated FDR and admired Hitler, who happened to be a favored customer. Why did Sloan continue to embrace the Nazi regime as its true nature became apparent?
The two faces of GMGeneral Motors was playing both ends to the middle in the 1930s and 1940s. While GM was busy getting the Third Reich rolling, the company was hatching a lucrative criminal conspiracy to undermine electric mass transit in dozens of American cities.

But the full story will not be known until a collection of critical in-house documents is made “public” in the truest sense of the word.
