Fritz A. Springmeier was born in Garden City, Kansas. Both sides of his family were farmers for many generations. Seeking solutions to the destruction of the American family farmer, his grandparents and other relatives joined the American Agricultural Movement in the '70's. In seeking solutions, the Ag Movement discovered pieces of the puzzle that helped lay a foundation for Fritz to discover more about the power at the top of the pyramid of control. His father's career was to help third world nations develop their agricultural abilities. As a result, one of the highlights of his youth included living overseas. In 1973, Senator Bob Dole appointed Fritz to West Point, USMA. Fritz resigned after his second year and was honorably discharged. After West Point, Fritz got several two year degrees and attended Rosedale Bible Institute. Fritz has been in Christian ministry since 1983. He was a part-time missionary for Witness, Inc. from 1983 to 1992. Fritz' rich and diverse background has made him an interesting guest, appearing on radio talk shows around the country and lecturing in the United States, Canada and Japan. Fritz has written numerous other books, some of which are now out of print. His ability to communicate complex subjects in a clear organized manner has endeared him to audiences and readers.
