Summary
The German aristocrat who was the leader in the plot to overthrow the Nazi government and assassinate Hitler (later known as Operation Valkyrie) was Claus-Phillip Maria Graf (Count) von Stauffenberg. This book is not only the first full-length biography of Stauffenberg in English, but also an invaluable record of the secret conspiracy that resulted in an attempt on Hitler's life in 1944. Stauffenberg was a member of the old German aristocracy in whom the old principles of duty toward God, man, and country were embodied. At great personal risk to all involved, plans for the unsuccessful coup d'état began early in 1940 among a group of aristocrats and members of the German Army's General Staff. Although the reader knows the outcome of the plot, the details have all the fascination of a fiction thriller. Stauffenberg was executed in his thirty-seventh year, with a call to Germany on his lips.--Adapted from jacket
