David Mayers, AM76, PhD79AuthorThis book constitutes an investigation into the effects that personality and circumstance had on US foreign policy during World War II. In the book I give an account of US envoys residing in the major belligerent countries—Japan, Germany, Italy, China, France, Great Britain, USSR—and highlight the fascinating role played by such diplomats as Joseph Grew, William Dodd, William Bullitt, Joseph Kennedy, John Winant, and W.

Averell Harriman. Between Hitlers 1933 ascent to power and the 1945 atomic bombing of Nagasaki, US ambassadors sculpted formal policy—occasionally deliberately, other times inadvertently—giving shape and meaning not always intended by FDR or predicted by his principal advisors. From appeasement to the Holocaust and the onset of the Cold War, I examine the complicated interaction between policy, as conceived in Washington, and implementation on the ground in Europe and Asia.

By so doing, I also shed needed light on the fragility, ambiguities, and enduring urgency of diplomacy and its crucial function in international politics.
