COUNTDOWN TO VALKYRIE THE JULY PLOT TO ASSASSINATE HITLER review Þ 103 Although there were than 40 plots to assassinate Adolf Hitler none came closer to success than the July Plot of 1944 The attempt was masterminded by Count von Stauffenberg a member of the German General Staff who had been rushed back from Africa after losing his left eye and right hand For his injuries he had been decorated as a war hero Never a supporter of Nazi ideology he was increasingly attracted by the approaches of the German resistance movement After an attempt to assassinate Hitler in November 1943 failed Stauffenb. There are a lot of things that one can take away from a book like this It is easy to look at the failure of the Valkyrie plot and wonder what would have happened with a bit time to make sure that the bomb killed Hitler or wonder about the failure of the plotters to have thought about basic uestions of how to ensure that Hitler s loyalists didn t disrupt efforts at forming a new government or whether it was in fact far too late by that time for there to be a peace treaty between Germany and others that would allow for some of Germany s gains from the beginning of World War II to be preserved It is obvious today that Hitler was a world historical level monster but it was less than obvious how he was to be removed and this book examines the tragic history of those who opposed him within Germany many of whom lacked the sort of resolution that he had and often found that their own lack of character and resolution made things easier on Hitler and undercut their sane opposition to Hitler s opportunism and warmongeringThis book is almost 300 pages long and is divided into ten chapters The book begins with an introduction and then a prologue that begins in media res by looking at sumer at the Wolf s Lair where Hitler ran the efforts to stem the Soviet counterattack from Barbarosa After that the author discusses the early life of Count Claus von Stauffenberg looking at his family life as well as the influence of the Georg circle 1 Then the author turns to a discussion of the rise of Hitler 2 and the rule of the outlaws during the chaotic years where extralegal violence became ordinary 3 The author discusses Hitler s march to war 4 as well as Hitler s war 5 and even a full chapter on a lone wolf effort on the part of Georg Elser to kill Hitler in Munich that narrowly failed 6 The author discusses the devil s luck and the failure of various army plots against Hitler 7 as well as the role of Stauffenberg 8 in providing firmness to efforts at ousting Hitler to save Germany A chapter is spent on detailing the events of the July 20th 1944 plot 9 and then the author discusses Hitler s cruel revenge 10 after which the book closes with an afterword with Claus son a list of dramatis personae a guide to sites acknowledgements and sources as well as photo credits and an indexAt the end of this book there is a particularly poignant discussion of what the son of Stauffenberg felt in the postwar German army as the son of an anti Nazi hero given the fact that even in those times there were some who would have felt it wrong to celebrate someone who gave his life in an attempt to put Hitler to death and to stop Germany from at least some measure of its madness and folly The reader must determine whether or not they celebrate tyrannicide or even attempted tyrannicide and where this would be applicable in other cases Sadly it appears as if there was a great deal of incompetence in Valkyrie and other efforts like it but that should not stop us from realizing that it demonstrates the existence of at least some sane people in Germany even if those sane people were not sufficient to stop Germany s decline into barbarism We must all lament the use of violence towards political ends but sometimes one faces desperate choices and it would be wise for us not to condemn others lest we in turn be condemned ourselves Clearly the author views tyrannicide as legitimate and it colors the way this book is written even if the plotters were sadly incompetent in many respects

COUNTDOWN TO VALKYRIE THE JULY PLOT TO ASSASSINATE HITLER review Þ 103 Iagrams author Nigel Jones dissects the lead up to the attempt the events of the day in minute by minute detail and the aftermath in which the conspirators were hunted downNo other work on the July Plot contains such accessible detail and full explanation of this attempt on Hitler's life In addition to a forensic analysis of the day the book includes short biographies of the key characters involved the first person recollections of witnesses and a 'what if' section explaining the likely outcome of a successful assassination. This was a great history of the military and government resistors to Hitler It was thorough and engaging and had a lot of pictures I was on the edge of my seat hoping for a different outcome this time It was a great companion follow up to the Bonhoeffer biography I liked reading about some of the some people and events over again It helps my not so great memory for facts and dates etc The last chapter was about the aftermath of the failed July 20 1944 plot executions torture and investigations It was heart breaking but also inspiring Here are some uotes I likedHenning von Tresckow shortly before suicide to avoid giving up names in uestioning after failed plot Now they will heap abuse on us all But I am convinced now as much as ever that we have done the right thing I believe that Hitler is the arch enemy not only of Germany but of the entire world In a few hours time I shall stand before God and answer both for my actions and the things I neglected to do I think I can with a clear conscience stand by all I have done in the battle against Hitler Just as God once promised Abraham that he would spare Sodom if only ten just men could be found in the city I have reason to hope that for our sake he will not destroy Germany No one among us can complain about his deathA man s moral worth is established only at the point when he is prepared to give his life for his convictionsFabian von Schlabrendorff when asked how he had endured tortures of the Gestapo We all made the discovery that we could endure far than we had ever believed possible The two great polar forces of human emotions love and hate together formed a supporting structure on which we could rely when things became unbearable Love the positive force included our faith in the moral worth of our actions the knowledge that we had fought for humanity and decency and the sense of having fulfilled a higher duty Those among us who had never prayed learned to do so now and discovered that in a situation such as ours prayer and prayer alone is capable of bringing comfort and lending almost superhuman strength One also finds that love in the form of prayers by relatives and friends on the outside transmits currents of strength Hate the negative force was just as important in sustaining us The consuming unualified hatred made up of eual parts of revulsion contempt and fury which we felt for the evil of Nazism was so powerful a force that it helped us endure situations which otherwise would have been intolerable Blue Moose recollections of witnesses and a 'what if' section explaining the likely outcome of a successful assassination. This was a great history of the military and government The Soul Thief reading about some of the some people and events over again It helps my not so great memory for facts and dates etc The last chapter was about the aftermath of the failed July 20 1944 plot executions torture and investigations It was heart breaking but also inspiring Here are some uotes I likedHenning von Tresckow shortly before suicide to avoid giving up names in uestioning after failed plot Now they will heap abuse on us all But I am convinced now as much as ever that we have done the Niko Love Me Harder #2 relatives and friends on the outside transmits currents of strength Hate the negative force was just as important in sustaining us The consuming unualified hatred made up of eual parts of The Soul Thief revulsion contempt and fury which we felt for the evil of Nazism was so powerful a force that it helped us endure situations which otherwise would have been intolerable
