Swastika Nation by Arnie Bernstein
Swastika Nation is the story of the German American Bund and its leader Fritz Kuhn in pre World War II times. Kuhn was a trained chemist and also a thief, he stole money from the Bund treasury to keep his many mistresses, he was eventually tried and imprisoned in Sing Sing for embezzlement. He had once worked for Henry Ford who who was known as an anti-Semitic. The historical research and storyline were wonderful and the characters although sleazy were written with great care. Thanks to Net Galley and St. Martins for allowing me to read this in exchange for an honest review.
