German diplomat Johann Heinrich Bernstorff was ambassador to the United States from 1908-1917. He is known to have tried to assuage American feelings toward Germany, and warned his government that undisciplined submarine warfare would force America into World War I. He continued to represent Germany in international politics, but went into exile at Geneva when Hitler came to power.
