Interesting book however I would not recommend it. For such a big part of history it was sort of boring. To sum it up, Ambassador Dodd was not liked by his peers, his only joy in life was writing his book about the Old South, his daughter liked to "hang" out with different crowds then Hitler came to power. The end.

In 1933, a year of increasing economic despair in the United States, Germany elected a new chancellor and a surprising resurgence appeared to occur in the once decimated superpower. For newly appointed American ambassador to Germany, William E. Dodd, and his family, Berlin is a city of enchantment and reports of brutality towards communists and Jews seem to them exaggerated. But as their stay in Germany continues, the darker truths of the new Germany become impossible to ignore. Larson follows up Devil in the White City with another intimate account of a big historical topic and the personal nature of the narrative illuminates Nazi Germany unlike any other nonfiction book I've encountered. Compelling, readable and fascinating from beginning to end.
