About this book
An abridged paperback edition of this insider's account of the plot to assassinate Hitler. It coincides with the new Tom Cruise film of the same name.
When on July 20, 1944 a bomb - placed inside the Wolf's Lair by the German Anti-Nazi Resistance - exploded without killing the Fuhrer, the coup d'etat against the Third Reich collapsed. The conspirators were shot or condemned in show trials and hanged. This work traces its history, from the 1933 Reichstag fire to Germany's defeat in 1945.
