ALFRED M. BECK served over twenty-five years as a historian and publisher in various Department of Defense historical programs. He lives in Falls Church, Virginia.


"Fred Beck deftly reconstructs for the first time the diplomatic odyssey of General Friedrich von Boetticher, Nazi Germany s military attache to the United States. No cardboard figure, von Boetticher embodied all the ambiguities and dilemmas faced by the old German officer corps in dealing with the Nazi state in both peace and war. Masterfully researched, richly textured, and well-written, Beck s portrayal of Germany s 'ambivalent attache' offers perceptive insights on the interaction of the German embassy with the American military establishment and the Washington diplomatic community on the eve of World War II."
