Eine völlig andere, brisante measurement bekommt es durch die wachsende Bedeutung des DEA-Konzerns in den dreißiger und vierziger Jahren. Als Treibstofflieferant für den Militärapparat battle er im 2.

Sehr behutsam nähert sich die Autorin diesem Leben und dieser Zeit, ergänzt die Erzählung mit Briefen, Dokumenten, eigenen Erinnerungen und genau recherchierten Fakten, die deswegen so verblüffend und erschreckend wirken, weil sie mit dieser »privaten« Biographie engstens und ganz selbstverständlich verflochten sind.
