At first, Dodd was optimistic that Hitler’s regime would change. But as the months passed, it became clear to him that a disaster was in process, that Hitler was bound for a war to dominate Europe. Dodd became a Cassandra: “What mistakes and blunders,” he wrote, “and no democratic peoples do anything!”
In her love affairs, Martha was ecumenical and prodigal: Rudolph Diels, for one, chief of the Gestapo; the writer Thomas Wolfe, when he came to town; a French diplomat; a German flying ace; and most important, Boris Winogradov, who was attached to the Soviet Embassy, and with whom she fell in love. Martha, now disillusioned with the Nazis, was recruited by the Soviet secret police.
After almost five years in Germany, Dodd came home exhausted and ill. He continued to warn of the great danger ahead, but, as he wrote to Roosevelt in 1939, after Hitler’s invasion of Poland, “Now it is too late.” A few months later, he was dead.
Winogradov disappeared in Stalin’s purges, but Martha continued her connection with Soviet intelligence. When she returned to the United States, she became prominent in Communist causes but, apparently, was no longer useful as a agent. Nevertheless, in 1953, when Martha and her husband, Alfred Stern, were subpoenaed by the House Committee on Un-American Activities, they fled to Mexico, and from there to Prague, where Martha died in 1990 at the age of 82, disillusioned once again.
The story of prewar Germany, of the Jews, of book burnings, of the Reichstag trial, of the Night of the Long Knives, of the Nuremberg rally, of the unfolding disaster is old news. But Larson has connected the dots to make a fresh picture of these terrible events.
