United States Ambassador to the Federal Republic from 1963 to 1968, from the end of the Adenauer era to the eve of the Social-Liberal coalition, McGhee draws heavily on his original reports about political conditions, often reflecting his wide-ranging conversations. A useful, perceptive account which recalls that some of today's problems have deep roots: American protestations concerning the right to reunification, German nervousness about U.S. support, economic disputes and American concerns about Ostpolitik. Also a good record of how the Vietnam War proved a disruptive element in our relations with Europe.
