Hitler's Loss: What Britain and America Gained from Europe's Cult

by

Hitler's Loss: What Britain and America Gained from Europe's Cult Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The fascinating story of how Hitler's intolerance of anyone with even a neutral opinion of Nazism led to a significant "brain drain," whereby Britain and America truly benefitted from the best minds of a German generation.

Book News Annotation:

Though the contributions of exiles to the US from Nazi Germany are well documented, British and Irish writer Ambrose found little analogous work concerning Britain, and begins to fill the gap by profiling selected people who influenced both countries. He also highlights the work of American Varian Fry, who helped many people out of Vichy France in order to preserve European art. He does not index subjects.
