Stories of the Failed Assassination Attempts on Adolf Hitler's Life.
The most celebrated attempt at the führer's life, is believed to be the one carried out by Clause von Stauffenberg, in Hitler's Wolf's lair headquarters. The explosion killed four, but Hitler survived. The attempted conspiracy was documented in a feature film The Valkyrie, starring Tom Cruise as Clause von Stauffenberg.
What is interesting to note, is that the motivation of almost all the assassins and conspirators greatly varied. While some wanted to take over his position as the leader of Germany, there were some who wanted to put an end to the Second World War - they didn't want to be part of the losing side a second time after World War I, especially since Germany was beginning to flounder against the Allied Powers.
The question then arises - how did one man survive against the attempts of so many? Hitler was the prime target of his own officials and deputies. To add to the list, were the millions around the world who had been deeply scandalized by his actions and decisions during the Nazi regime.
This audiobook takes a look into the lives of the people who dared to try and assassinate the leader of Nazi Germany. The audiobook also carefully includes the reactions of the public, and Hitler towards the conspirators and plotters.
