I believe this is what you are looking for
the USA funded Hitler and the NAZIS from 1924 rockefeller gave the NAZIS 32 million up to 1932
here is a short list of who and when
if this company had not supplied hitler with ball bearings for the whole of WW2 the war would have ground to a Halt in 1940
corporate USA and Wall st Financed Hitler In the Belief that he would Go to war with the Bolsheviks
that is why these people Continued to Finance his Rise to Dictator from 1924 and continue up to 1945
ITT owned Factory of Fokker Wolf
In 1933 Prescott Bush Rockefeller and FDR loaned Hitler the Money that put him in power when he won the elections
On Hitler's birthday in 1939, the Ford Company in germany sent him a gift of 50,000 Marks as a token of its loyalty.
Ford is actually the only American that Hitler even mentions in his book Mein Kampf.
By 1941, the Ford Werke plant became one of the largest suppliers of military vehicles to the German Army.
the Grand Cross of the German Eagle was presented to these Americans from Hitler
James Mooney, the General Motors executive in charge of European operations also received award. Coincidentally, his firm had also invested very heavily in Germany. In 1929, General Motors had bought up 80% of the German automobile firm of Opel.
The same award was presented by Herman Göring to the wildly popular (and coincidentally, very wealthy, and highly politically 'connected') American aviation hero, Charles Lindbergh, in October, 1938
Thomas J. Watson, chairman of IBM, 1937. Watson was also president of the International Chamber of Commerce in 1937;
Henry Ford was awarded the Grand Cross of the German Eagle on his 75th birthday, 30 July 1938.
General Olof Thörnell, Supreme Commander of the Swedish Armed Forces, was awarded the Grand Cross of the German Eagle 7 October 1940. so much for Neutrality
Charles Lindbergh was awarded the Order of the German Eagle with Star 19 October 1938.
SKF ignored the request to stop selling to Germany in 1943 because they were making to Much money
here are a few that contributed up to and including 1945
SKF of Philadelphia
Standard Oil refuelling U Boats caught by the US coast Guard in 1943
IG Farben Owned By standard oil which was owned By prescott Bush and the Rockefeller's
Du Pont who were also working with the Manhattan Project
IBM helped with the Holocaust
Coco Cola they developed Fanta in Germany
Ford Opel in Germany owned and controlled fully by GM
Standard Gas & Electric
The International Harvester Company
Herman Metz, a director of the Bank of Manhattan, controlled by the Warburgs.
the Rockefeller Chase Bank remained Open in Paris up to 1944 doing Business with the Nazis
Moreover, American assistance to Nazi war efforts extended into other areas.
The largest tank producers in Hitler's Germany were General Motors (controlled by the J.P. Morgan firm),Opel a wholly owned subsidiary of Ford built his Trucks up to and including 1945
the Ford A. G. subsidiary of the Ford Motor Company of Detroit. The Nazis granted tax-exempt status to Opel in 1936, to enable General Motors to expand its production facilities.
General Motors obligingly reinvested the resulting profits into German industry to make More Money.
Alcoa and Dow Chemical worked closely with Nazi industry with numerous transfers of their domestic U.S. technology. Bendix Aviation, in which the J.P. Morgan-controlled General Motors firm had a major stock interest, supplied Siemens & Halske A. G. in Germany with data on automatic pilots and aircraft instruments. As late as 1940, in the "unofficial war," Bendix Aviation supplied complete technical data to Robert Bosch for aircraft and diesel engine starters and received royalty payments in return.
so IBM Texaco Bendix ITT Ford GM Heinz, Colgate, Birds Eye DuPon Dillon, National City Bank, and General Electric Alcoa, and Dow Chemical William Randolph Hearst
Read & Co. Loan $241,325,000 profit $2.7 million
Harris, Forbes & Co. Loan 186,500,000 profit 1.4 million
National City Co. Loan 173,000,000 profit 5.0 million
Speyer & Co. Loan 59,500,000 profit 0.6 million
Lee, Higginson & Co Loan. 53,000,000 profit not known
Guaranty Co. of N.Y. Loan 41,575,000 profit 0.2 million
Kuhn, Loeb & Co. Loan 37,500,000 profit 0.2 million
Equitable Trust Co.
that was $826,400,000 loan to the Nazis that is over 44,000,000,000 at todays rates
Sosthenes Behn of ITT was a major financier of the Swedish ball bearing firm SKF, which preferentially supplied the Nazis with ball bearings and denied them to the US military.
yes corporate USA and Wall St used hitler to start WW2 in the Hope that he would Defeat the Communists

From whom? AFAIK, the National Socialist Party (aka: Nazi) was the democratically elected government of the day. They didn't need "support" - they ran one of the most productive and important industrialised nations in the world. Germany is not some 3rd-world psithole.
