As early as 1938, elements within the German Army had plotted to remove their dangerous Fôhrer from power. By 1944, with the Allies landing in France and the Eastern Front in disarray, the Army plotters were desperate. A plan was hatched: assassinate Hitler with a briefcase bomb, and in the ensuing chaos use emergency powers to stage a coup.

A young, wounded veteran, Claus von Stauffenberg, volunteered to take the time-delay bomb into a briefing with Hitler on 20 July 1944. The explosion killed four men, but only injured the Fôhrer - yet the coup was attempted regardless, with tragic results.

With detailed maps and illustrations, this book examines the German Army's resistance to Hitler and the assassination plot of 20 July, and gives a blow-by-blow account of how the broader coup was attempted, foiled, and revenged
