In the Garden of Beasts
I wouldn't even be able to imagine what it was to live in the early days of Hitler's Germany as an American. Thankfully this is a wonderful account of the American ambassador's family's lives in Berlin. It's personal, inquisitive and, frankly, shocking.
I'm an Erik Larson fan to begin with (he of "The Devil in the White City"), and this was a great follow-up.
