A Small Nation in the Turmoil of the Second World War
Money, Finance and Occupation (Belgium, its Enemies, its Friends, 1939–1945)
Studies in Social and Economic History, Volume 35
Based on intensive research in the archives of six countries, this book presents an in-depth analysis of Belgium's monetary and financial history during World War II. Exploring Belgium's financial and business links with Germany, France, The Netherlands, Great Britain, the United States, and the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, the authors focus on the roles played in this complex wartime network by the Central Bank and private bankers in Brussels, by the Belgian government in exile in London, and by the Belgian minister plenipotentiary in New York.
