Allan Wingate, London 1955 - vi, [2], 552 pages. Index. Black and white photographic plates.

His first great triumph was to rescue the German Mark from the inflation of 1921. As the Nazi avalanche swelled, Hitler persuaded him to occupy the Presidential chair at the Reichsbank. but (Schacht) soon saw that the Fuhrer was driving relentlessly towards war. A quarrel resulted and he left the Government, remaining under a cloud until he was arrested towards the close of the regime." - from dust jacket. Schact was later aquitted of war crimes at Nuremberg. Average wear to unmarked book. Above-average wear and soiling to dust jacket which is now preserved in archival-grade Brodart.
