This chapter focuses on William Dodd's arrival in Berlin in July 1933, with his wife and daughter, as United States ambassador to Germany. It first considers Dodd's initial impressions of Berlin and the Germans before turning to his discovery of a country still steeped in history and a government seemingly eager to satisfy American demands. It then describes Dodd's work with George A. Gordon and George S. Messersmith, the Counselor of Embassy and the Consul General, respectively. It also discusses Dodd's tasks in Germany as a diplomat, especially his analysis of the pace and direction the revolution led by Adolf Hitler and the Nazis might take at that moment. Finally, it examines Dodd's strained relations with the U.S. Department of State over practically everything he wished to achieve.
