Sir Henry Deterding: a fervent admirer of Hitler

Extract from an article published by The Times on 23 April 2003 under the headline:

A very British kind of scandal: why Shell is no Enron”:

“When the British Shell company merged with Royal Dutch in 1906 it was soon dominated by a single despot, Henri Deterding, a brilliant trader who became increasingly autocratic and ended up a fervent admirer of Hitler.”
