Operation Eagle Flight was the plan for Nazism's continued struggle beyond the end of World War II by Martin Bormann, who had considered the likelihood that Germany would lose the war by August 1944. Remaining loyal to the Führer, Adolf Hitler, he began planning for the future and called a secret meeting with German business leaders in Strasbourg to gather the necessary financial resources to fund such an ambitious venture. He set up more than 700 front corporations which he used to spirit away money, gold, bonds, copyrights and patents. None of this was detected by the Allies. (PROSE: The Shadow in the Glass)
