Hitler's Traitors: German Resistance to the Nazi'sby Susan Ottaway

Hitler's Traitors -German Resistance to the Nazis is the story of the groups and individuals that opposed Hitler and his government and tells of their heroic, but largely ineffective, efforts to rid themselves of the most evil regime in modern times.
They came from many different backgrounds -Protestant pastors, Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Martin Niemoeller; Catholic bishops such as Clements Galen, who was Bishop of Munster, and his cousin Konrad, Count von Preysing, Bishop of Berlin; politicians Otto Wels and Ernst Thalmann, students Hans and Sophie Scholl, their friends Christoph Probst and Alexander Schmorell and their university professor, Kurt Huber; military men such as Claus von Stauffenberg and Admiral Wilhelm Canaris and even a member of the Waffen 55, Kurt Gerstein.
Sadly by the time the Nazi regime came to an end most of those Germans who had resisted it were dead: arrested, imprisoned, tried and executed in the most barbaric manner.
