Scott Nehmer asserts that academia is guilty of rewriting the history of World War II.

While completing his PhD dissertation, Scott Nehmer’s academic advisor encouraged him to omit details that would imply fault and wrongdoing against Ford during World War II, advising Nehmer to state various implications from sensationalist journalists as fact. “I refuse to cut people who deal in falsehoods any slack. Rather than ignore them, I identify their sensationalism and how it comes at the expense of the truth. American college professors are doing all sorts of rotten things to students right now.”

“Ford, General Motors, and the Nazis” is a provocative analysis of Ford and GM’s war efforts in the United States and Europe – including Marxist myths about production, patriotism and philosophies – during World War II. The book examines the role patriotism and propaganda played on the American public and the leaders at Ford and GM, who actively worked to balance loyalty to both their corporations and the homeland.

“The Ford and GM parent companies were loyal to the United States during World War II.” Nehmer said, “I want readers to come to a better understanding of the topics rather than simply taking what sounds good as fact. Throughout the years, people were willing to use Marxist/sensationalist talking points for their own benefit.”
