Overview

This is the complete chronicle of all the attempts made to kill Adolf Hitler culminating in the July 20, 1944 bomb plot set by Colonel Klaus von Stauffenberg. But like all the preceding plots, the final attempt of 1944 also failed—even though it came very close to succeeding—and Hitler owed his survival to a few last-minute changes. The film Valkyrie, starring Tom Cruise as von Stauffenberg, was a successful portrayal of that famous attempt. This is a first paperback edition.
