Berlin, 1933. William E.Dodd becomes America's first ambassador to Hitler's Germany in a year that will prove to be a turning point in history. A mild-mannered professor from Chicago, he brings along his wife, son, and flamboyant daughter, Martha. Dodd must associate with key Nazis and attend their glittering parties, while telegraphing his growing tears to a largely indifferent State Department. His daughter, meanwhile, becomes entranced with the "New Germany" and has one affair after another, including with the surprisingly honorable first chief of the Gestapo, Rudolf Diels. The year darkens ominously and both Dodd and his daughter find their lives gradually transformed - until the bloody night that reveals Hitler's true character. Breathtakingly paced, with unforgettable portraits of Germany's new masters, IN THE GARDEN OF BEASTS is a stunning work of narrative nonfiction that sheds fresh light on why America stood by as Hitler rose to power.
