Description
The Krupp Family, a four-hundred year dynasty that armed Germany in three major wars. They were superbe inventors of military weaponry. Their cannon won the Franco-Prussian war at Sedan in 1870; they invented the first antaircraft gun to shoot down observation balloons. They manufactured submarines; their mammoth weapons pulverized Verdun and shelled Paris at a range of 81 miles. They armed the forces of the Kaiser and of Hitler and financed Hitler's "Terror Election" of 1933. During the Nazi era, the Krupps ruled 138 privately owned concentration camps, and Hitler honored their loyalty by decreeing special tax exemptions. They survived a Nuremburg conviction to become the dynamo behind Europe's Common Market. The last of the Krupps was buried on August 3, 1967.
