Most of us are aware of the attempt to assassinate Hitler but few know about those behind it. In this history Peter Hoffmann reveals the tragic and heroic life of Claus von 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. This book is based on a comprehensive collection of sources including family papers, correspondence and information from numerous contemporaries, and includes a collection of illustrative material. This second edition includes important information Hoffmann has discovered since the book was first published."
