Overview

A piercing study of the tenacious roots of American fascism, from robber baron days to Reichstag Fire to "Homeland Security," shattering the foundational myths of Pax Americana.
In The Nazi Hydra, Glen Yeadon delves into America's darkest taboo -- the elite's enduring support for fascism. He and researcher John Hawkins overturn the cherished tableau of America defending the globe from totalitarian hordes.
In relentless, fascinating detail, The Nazi Hydra traces how US financiers created Hitler and his war machine, attempted a putsch against FDR, and recouped Nazi assets to lay the foundation of the NSA, CIA and today's emerging police state.
The iconoclastic conclusion: the Fascists won World War II — they ran both sides!
Years of research bring to light an immense store of shocking secrets in this fact-filled blockbuster. The authors mine a rich vein of evidence which runs counter to deep-set taboos and overturns the selective, accepted view of America in the 20th century as the world’s bulwark of democracy. They document in detail how US plutocrats helped fascism come to power in Europe, and have subverted America since the war.
The Nazi Hydra is vital information essential for everyone trying to fathom and oppose today’s slide into fascism, closely paralleling events of the past century, and instigated by the same tenacious faction of society. Citizens with a concern for the immediate future of their family and country, and especially those involved with media or politics, urgently need to heed the warnings of history in this book.

Ch. 1 gives a historical overview fascism and what it is. Ch. 2 discusses the problem of corporatism vs. the Constitution. Ch. 3 and 4 chronicle the history of reactionary movements and cliques in the the 1920’s and 1930’s -- populists, KKK, industrialists like Ford and Dupont. Ch. 5 relates the attempts of US plutocrats to help Hitler win. Ch. 6 covers the failure of the denazification program at the end of WW2 . Ch. 7 tells how the gold looted by the Nazis was stolen to create black slush funds. In Ch. 8 is the story of the ratlines, the recruiting of Gestapo agents into the CIA, the roles of Gehlen, Dulles and Dr. Mengele of MK Ultra fame.

Editorial Reviews

J Leonard
In Nazi Hydra, Yeadon documents how American fascists in top corporate suites built up Hitler's Nazi Party and war machine, and came very close to turning our country into a Nazi dictatorship in the 1930's. He also lays bare the roots of the problem -- the creeping encroachment of the constitutional powers of government by corporations -- and he recommends a solution.
Howard Zinn
This is a valuable history of the relationship between big business in the United States and European fascism, before, during, and after the second World War. The story is shocking and sobering and deserves to be widely read.
