This book is a direct result of the 1998 Nazi War Crimes Disclosure Act. Drawing upon many documents declassified under this law, the authors demonstrate what US intelligence agencies learned about Nazi crimes during World War II and about the nature of Nazi intelligence agencies' role in the Holocaust. It examines how some US corporations found ways to profit from Nazi Germany's expropriation of the property of German Jews. This book also reveals startling new details on the Cold War connections between the US government and Hitler's former officers. At a time when intelligence successes and failures are at the center of public discussion, US Intelligence and the Nazis also provides an unprecedented inside look at how intelligence agencies function during war and peacetime.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Thanks to the 1998 Nazi War Crimes Disclosure Act, the CIA, US Army, and FBI were required to declassify documents in their files dealing with Nazi war crimes and criminals during and after WWII. Richard Breitman, Norman J.W. Goda, Timothy Naftali, and Robert Wolfe have analyzed these files. The result is a fascinating series of essays...This volume will be an important addition to every collection dealing with WWII...Highly recommended." -CHOICE, K. Eubank, emeritus, CUNY Queens College
"One can only commend the authors for their diligence, thoroughness and erudition in undertaking what was obviously a daunting task. In working through this enormous quantity of material, they have rendered an invaluable service to other historians working on topics related to the Holocaust or the use by Allied intelligence services of Nazis as intelligence assets.... this sobering and illuminating volume does much to improve our understanding of both the Holocaust and U.S. intelligence during and after the war." - H-German, Devin O. Pendas, Department of History, Boston College
"They have shown how historians and citizens can profit from even a long-delayed disclosure of important documents. Breitman, Goda, Naftali, and Wolfe have told an important but depressing story with skill and objectivity. Scholars concerned with Nazi criminality and its sordid aftermath will long be in their debt." - Robert E. Herzstein, University of South Carolina
"Breitman, Goda, Naftali, and Wolfe have done the scholarly community a service by demonstarting the value of these newly available sources. The book--and the effort that produced it--offers a model for how primary sources records can inform both historical inquity and topics of current interest." The International History Review Thomas G. Mahnken, Johns Hopkins University
"[An] outstanding volume...a great deal to offer the serious Holocaust reader...This is heartily recommended to them. This is a volume which is an eye-opener, to say the least." Dr. Diane Cypkin, Martyrdom and Resistance
