Summary
  • "On July 20, 1944, a one-eyed, one-armed veteran of Rommel's Afrika Korps smuggled a briefcase full of high explosive into a conference room in the Wolf's Lair, Hitler's East Prussian command headquarters. Finally, after ten years of intrigues and reversals, disappointment and vacillation, the German officer corps had turned against its master, Adolf Hitler."
  • "Operation Valkyrie - the code name for the military coup d'etat - was underway. The authors have found the key to these complex and often cryptic events in the archives and personal recollections of General Adolf Heusinger, operations chief of the German general staff from 1940 to 1944. Heusinger met with Hitler over six hundred times, and came to be the conspirators' special envoy to the Nazi court, a role that exposed him to considerable risks. He was critically wounded at the Wolf's Lair and only narrowly escaped death a second time at the hands of the SS." "The story of the July 20 rebellion has exercised the imaginations of historians and readers for more than a half-century, but is told here with unrivaled clarity and completeness."--Jacket
