Description

Black attempts to prove veracity of an urban legend regarding GM's relationship with Germany. As the Nazi war machine gathered steam, General Motors was a major helper as the German military built its dominance. At the same time, GM was "perpetrating a massive criminal conspiracy to subvert clean, electric mass transit - trolleys - in 40 cities, thus helping our addiction to oil." GM had buried its past involvement with the Nazis by funding an academic inquiry, then keeping the results secret even after donating them to Yale University.
