b004hfrjm6-01-lBook #6: In the Garden of Beasts: Love, Terror, and an American Family in Hitler’s Berlin, Erik Larson

Appointed as an ambassador by FDR, William Dodd finds himself in pre WW2, Nazi Germany.  Dodd is fought between the darkening thunderclouds of Nazism in Berlin and the willfully naive sentiment toward Nazi Germany in Washington.  This is a must read and can inform our national discourse on the role of America around the world.
