    schema:reviewBody ""On 19 November 1918, Adolf Hitler's Munich savings account had a balance of 15 marks and 20 pfennigs. Yet by mid-1944 he was probably one of the richest men in Europe with a vast art collection (mostly paid for, rather than looted) and extensive property holdings. While his career and achievements have been minutely examined in countless literary works, strangely, the financial affairs of one of the most dominant figures of the twentieth century have largely remained a mystery." "Thanks to years of painstaking research by the author, Hitler's Fortune reveals his wealth came not, as is commonly supposed, merely from sales of Mein Kampf, but from his publishing company, Eher Verlag, and from the Adolf Hitler Spende, a fund to which industrialists and others 'voluntarily' contributed to show their gratitude and curry favour. Although Hitler publicly claimed that he never owned any share in Eher Verlag, this work provides strong evidence to the contrary. It is also revealed that he would never have been able to build his publishing empire so quickly without the backing of Frau von Seidlistz. Indeed it was primarily adoring women that enabled him to fund his climb to power throughout the crucial early years." "As well as showing how the dictator amassed his wealth, this book uncovers what happened to the property, funds, art collection and other assets after 1945. It also reveals who might profit today from any residual legacy. Amongst evidence offered are two recently discovered bank accounts in his name and the intriguing story of Max Amann." "While not claiming to contain all the answers, Hitler's Fortune most certainly gets closer to the truth about a remarkable and vital aspect of Hitler's life than any previous work."--Jacket." ;
