Publisher Comments:

An intriguing portrait of the central figure in the July 1944 bomb plot against Hitler and a gripping and authoritative account of the planning and execution of the conspiracy. Most of us are aware of the attempt to assassinate Hitler but few know about those behind it. In this family history Peter Hoffmann reveals the tragic and heroic life of Claus, Count Stauffenberg, South German aristocrat and would-be assassin of Adolph Hitler. He details Stauffenberg's formative years, showing how his relationship with his brothers Berthold and Alexander, their association with the circle of the poet Stefan George, and their professional and political development led them to resist the tyranny of Hitler and the German government, first through established channels but culminating in the attempted assassination and coup of 20 July 1944. Stauffenberg is based on the most comprehensive collection of sources yet used, including family papers, correspondence, and information from numerous contemporaries, and includes a unique collection of illustrative material. This new edition includes important information Hoffmann has discovered since the book was first published.
