This book details a striking political relationship between American Ambassador Frederic Sackett and German Chancellor Heinrich Bruning and their attempts to save the Weimar Republic, achieve German nationalist goals, and thwart Adolf Hitler's drive to power. Sackett believed that financial policy was at the heart of German problems and, unless resolved, could be the basis for Hitler's success. 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. The American thought that misrule by incompetent and inefficient Nazis would pave the way for a communist state. Although at first he saw the Nazis as harbingers of worse to come, in time he came to see Hitler as the real threat to democracy in Germany.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"...a lucid and fluent narrative/analysis of the events of Sackett's embassy into the bargain....[a] spledid piece of work." The International History Review
"...a meticulously researched work that offers substantial insight into American involvement in Germany immediately prior to Hitler's accession. ...interesting and detailed....The reviewer heartily endorses this monograph." History
"This is a carefully researched and balanced account... Burke has made a substantial contribution to our understanding of U.S. policy toward Germany in the final years of the Weimar Replublic." German Studies Review
"...a first-rate study of Frederic Sackett, Herbert Hoover's ambassador to Germany. In the process, readers not only get insights into US policy concerning war debts, reparations, and disarmament, but also learn how the Western diplomatic corps--of which Sackett was an integral part--analyzed the decline of the Weimar Republic and Hitler's assumption of power. Few, if any, studies on US policy toward late Weimar Germany are so detailed. Thus, Burke has written a definitive work that fills a real gap." J.D. Doenecke, Choice
