Set in 1933, this astonishing account follows the story of William E. Dodd and his exuberant daughter, Martha, during his years as the U.S. ambassador to Berlin under Hitler’s rule. An incredible story of one man’s growing concern for a progressively cruel regime, and the universal apathy turned on him by the world. 

Great for:

  • Readers interested in a new perspective on what happened in the early years of the Third Reich
  • WWII buffs
  • Anyone wanting a deeper look into US-German diplomacy leading up to the war
