Customer Review

on February 28, 2012
Enjoyed Stephen Hoye's reading of this book. The research was terrifc and obviously Lardon spent a lot of hours studying the prewar diaries of these important World War Two characters. Dodd our ambassador in those days (US) was probably better fitted for the job than his contemporary State Department bosses gave him credit for. He had that viewpoint of history which he shared with Roosevelt, who appointed him. Was particularly inteerested in the human side of this family including the flamboyant Martha, his daughter, who was definitely a product of her generation's malaise. My Jewish friends rate this book high on their list of "must reads" for its exposure of the general racist dislike of Jews in the US and abroad before the war. Well worth the read. Tom the bread baker.
