1933 William E. Dodd becomes America's ambassador to Germany.
This is the telling of his service and his family, mostly his daughter.
You do get pre and post events but the main focus of this book is on documenting his years as ambassador.
Very Very interesting!
And sad.
A great addition to your WWII reading.
