Excellent
26 May 2018 | by kaynilsenSee all my reviews

I just read Erik Larson's book "In the garden of beasts". The book tells you the story of William E. Dodd, american ambassador in Berlin from 1933 to 1937. Recommended! Combined with this series, it gives you a great view on what happened in Germany during that period, and we can only wonder why USA, GB and France didn't do something about it much earlier. They absolutely underestimated the situation. Hitler just wanted time to build his army.

William E. Dodd foresaw all this, and allthough he was criticized by many during that time because of what he said and wrote about what he thought would happen, he was later seen as a prophet they all should have listened to.

"Hitler's circle of evil" is an excellent documentary!
