This 'family biography' describes the brothers' youth and formative years, their association with the circle of the poet Stefan George, and their professional and political development. Their professions and their political and military environments led them to take fundamental positions on the military ethos and on their government's and Hitler's tyranny.
The military career of Claus, Count Stauffenberg and his fight to overthrow Hitler, culminating in the attempted assassination and coup of 20 July 1944, provide the focus for the book. It is based on the most comprehensive collection of sources yet used, including family papers, correspondence, and information from numerous contemporaries, with a unique collection of illustrative material.
