There wasn’t enough food and the country was going bankrupt. On his first day home, lie had been caught up in a street riot, watching in disbelief as German troops fought strikers in the streets. Huddled in a doorway, he was numbed with horror. “Go back to work or be shot, “an army captain demanded. ” When the strikers refused, he ordered his men to fire into the knot of civilians.
The gas stung his hands and neck. Then he looked up and saw the American Marine standing over him, his rifle pointed at him, the point of his bayonet at Ingersoll s throat.

He encouraged them and used them to fuel Hitler’s most outrageous schemes, many of which he himself had subtly planted in the Führer’s mind.
