This book details the attempts of American Ambassador Frederic Sackett to save the Weimar Republic, achieve German nationalist goals, and thwart Adolf Hitler's drive to power. Very early in his tenure in Berlin, Sackett saw Hitler and the Nazis as a serious danger to the Weimar Republic and to peace in Europe. Although at first the American thought that misrule by incompetent and inefficient Nazis would pave the way for a communist state, in time he came to see Hitler as the real threat to democracy in Germany.
