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!

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!
