This chapter focuses on William Dodd's tenure in Berlin in the 1930s as United States ambassador to Germany. More specifically, it considers Dodd's attitudes toward Adolf Hitler and the Nazis as well as America's increasing isolationism. It also cites Dodd's distress at having to represent a country stripping itself of moral and political influence and his continued interest in developments in Berlin. Finally, it examines events that reinforced Dodd's impression of a Nazi Germany bent upon war and taught him that America's isolationism was beginning to deprive it of even the smallest voice in foreign affairs.
