This is the story of William Dodd and his family after he is appointed Ambassador to Germany in 1933, a post he kept until 1937. He became aware of the Hitler menace at a time when Hitler could have been stopped, but government officials in the state department and foreign service were unwilling to listen to him. The US was isolationist at this time and there was anti-Semitism in high places. Dodd was a history professor and selected because no one else wanted the job.
