Picture Principal Skinner from The Simpsons and Paris Hilton going to Nazi Germany and you ll have a pretty good idea of what this book is likeI was split on Erik Larson s The Devil in the White City because I found the half of the book about the 1893 Chicago s World Fair incredibly interesting but thought the other half about serial killer HH Holmes to be just another true crime gore fest Then in Thunderstruck he again gave us some nice pop history with the story of Marconi and the invention of the radio but then he stretched the inclusion of a crime story to a ridiculous exteme by trying to tie in a manhunt for a killer across the Atlantic that used early wireless I was hoping that In the Garden of Beasts would allow Larson to play to his strengths with a story about Nazis in the 1930s because I thought he could give a detailed look at life in Berlin as Hitler was consolidating his power and this time he d actually have a legitimate horror story to tell without it feeling like something just tacked on to sell books Instead I got a story about a couple of people who were surrounded by evil and didn t do a helluva lot about itThe story centers on William Dodd and his daughter Martha Dodd was a history professor in Chicago with minor political connections and a dream of obtaining a uiet government post somewhere so he could finish writing a history of the American Civil War When President Roosevelt couldn t get anyone else to take the job he asked Dodd to be the ambassador to Germany Dodd accepted and took his wife and two grown children along with him Like a lot of Americans Dodd was worried about some of the stories of Nazi violence coming out at the time but thought that Hitler might be nudged towards controlling the extreme factions since he d just taken over as chancellor His interactions with the Nazi power brokers and the rise of German nationalistic fervor eventually convinced Dodd that Hitler and his people were bad news for the entire worldHere s where the book falls down for me Larson got me interested in the Chicago World s Fair because I knew nothing about it and he made it come alive I already know about how the Nazis came to power so the history piece of this is old news to me While there s some interesting slice of life details and Larson does a nice job of giving you a sense of the weird combination of paranoia pride terror and zeal that pervaded Germany in the 1930s it s really nothing I haven t heard before Maybe I would have been interested if I would have found Dodd s story intriguing but frankly the ambassador seemed about as interesting as a saltine cracker to meDodd comes across as a decent enough guy for his time He did advocate policies of getting tougher with Germany when most of America was in full isolationist mode but aside from irking the Nazis with a couple of speeches and boycotting a couple of official functions he really didn t do anything And as one of his critics of the time pointed out an ambassador who refuses to meet with the government of the country he s in really isn t accomplishing much Dodd irritated others in America s diplomatic service with his constant criticism of their spending and seemed concerned with cutting costs at the embassy rather than dealing with the GermansThe odd thing about this book is that Larson all but ignores Dodd s wife and son in favor of giving a detailed portrayal of his daughter Martha Martha came along with her father as her first marriage was ending and to put it mildly she got around I mean it s good that a woman in her time was sexually liberated enough to carry on with guys like the poet Carl Sandburg However once she dated the head of the Gestapo and a top Soviet spy as well as many many others I had the impression that Martha was less than discriminating with her affections Hell she even kinda went along with a half assed scheme one of the Nazis had to try and hook her up with Hitler himselfSo this becomes the story of a mild mannered diplomat dealing with the rise of some of the most evil fucks in history but he s pinching pennies at the embassy instead of giving visas to every Jewish person he could find And his daughter is a sleeping her way through Europe while at first extolling the virtues of the Nazis then deciding that she s kind of a communist but in the end Martha doesn t do much but put a smile on the face of any guy who gives her a wink and a smile In this case I knew the history and only got a story about a couple of people who seem like they should have been maybe a chapter in larger history of the time and place Dodd and Martha just didn t impress or intrigue me enough to warrant reading a whole book about them It s disappointing that Larson decided to make them the center of
