New book claims EU was Hitler's idea
The formation of European Union (EU) was reportedly Hitler's idea and it proved that Germany won the II World War, a new book has claimed.
The book titled 'The EU: The Truth About The Fourth Reich - How Hitler Won The Second World War' says that single currency, the free market and even the phrase "United States of Europe" were all dreamt up by high ranking Nazis, including the Hitler himself, the Daily Express reported.
The book, co-written by Daniel J Beddowes and Falvio Cipollini talks about what was the EU for and who really benefitted.
The author, in one of the chapter, claimed that the late German dictator was the man who gave bones to the dreams first expressed by Charlemagne and Napoleon but the finishing touch to the EU were put in place during World War II by a man called Walther Funk, who was the President of the Reichsbank and a director of the Bank for International Settlements.
