This chapter focuses on William Dodd's return to Berlin in the 1930s as United States ambassador to Germany. It considers Dodd's views about the Nazis' victories and promises of yet greater Nazi strength, citing his statement that “nothing is more oppressive to a democrat...than the situation in Europe.” It also looks at several unhappy facts that greeted Dodd on his return to Germany, including the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War and Adolf Hitler's persecution of the Jews. Finally, it assesses Dodd's decision to leave Berlin in 1937.

Keywords:   ambassador, William Dodd, United States, Germany, Nazis, Europe, Spanish Civil War, Adolf Hitler, Jews
