Gustav Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach I

(p.123) Four Diplomacy

Harold James

Princeton University Press

This chapter discusses the next era in the Krupp corporate history, detailing the company's various innovations and setbacks during this period, as well as the Krupp family's latest representative—Gustav Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach. It first details the contentions over the next heir to the Krupp business, a question finally resolved when heiress Bertha Krupp married the diplomat Gustav von Bohlen und Halbach. Gustav was initially treated with some reserve by the directors of the company, and was moreover increasingly at odds with the nationalist management of the company. Complicating matters further was the outbreak of the First World War.

Keywords:   NIROSTA, World War I, Gustav von Bohlen, naval rearmament, Bertha Krupp, diplomacy, nationalist management, Gustav Krupp
