Friedrich von Boetticher (1881-1967)Download nowEnlargeShow similar images

Title: Friedrich von Boetticher (1881-1967)

Description: Friedrich von Boetticher (1881-1967), left, German general of the army, who was the only Third Reich military attaché to the U.S. (from 1933). He is shown with the U.S. commander of the Presidio in California during a U.S. military exercise. Boetticher spent most of his time collecting U.S. military secrets, sending detailed information to spymasters in Germany. In 1936, for instance, he sent a detailed report about early U.S. rocket experiments. Throughout his stay in the U.S., he reported troop dispositions, the sailings of military vessels and the production of U.S. warplanes. He was a favorite of Adolf Hitler, who religiously read Boetticher's reports, chiefly because Boetticher's anti-Jewish comments coincided with Hitler's. Boetticher peppered his reports with remarks like "the fatal control of American policy by the Jews." Boetticher assured Hitler that the U.S. would concentrate its forces against Japan, not Germany, which, more than anything else caused Hitler to declare war on the U.S. following the Japanese attack at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. Just the opposite was the case. The U.S. concentrated its wartime efforts against Germany and intended to hold Japan "in check" until Germany was defeated and then conclude its war with Japan by defeating that Pacific aggressor nation.
