The Reichswerke occupy a central place in the wider discussion of the relationship between state and industry in the Third Reich. Though recent historiography, both east and west, has gone well beyond the crude equation of monopoly capitalism and the Nazi movement, there is a striking reluctance to discuss the detailed interests of German capitalism during this period, or the political dilemmas that confronted businessmen when, after a brief honeymoon, National Socialism turned out to be an increasingly inappropriate structure for their long-term interests. Some businessmen had argued as much before 1933. Others saw Nazism as a means to cement a renewed integration, or Sammlung, of conservative forces. However, as it turned out integration was imposed not from above, but from below, by forces in popular politics quite beyond the control of German businessmen.
