Great detail right to the point . Love the series, had this book when it came out and lost it a few years back. Details the plot and shows some of the reasons it failed besides a chance kick of the foot.

McDonald Publishing and the Imperial War Museum teamed up back in the late 1960s and early 1970s to publish this tight series of illustrated paperbacks on the history of World War I, World War II (and a few other conflicts of the 20th century), which were picked up by Ballantine in the United States. They were all divided into subjects: battles, campaigns, weapons, war leaders, politics in action, human conflict, and regalia, by color bands on the bottom, enjoying common editing and artwork, and a fairly common collection of well-known historians. They cost $1 at the time (a good deal of money) and a lot more now (being out of print).

The series as a whole is slightly outdated by the disclosures from Allied codebreaking, and suffered from being whipped together in a hurry, but they remain then and now a fine introduction to conflict in the 20th century -- if you can find them.

Adolf Hitler was the target of 43 separate assassination attempts and gained the hatred of vast numbers of his own people (to their credit). However, this book focuses on one group of plotters: the Wehrmacht and Abwehr team that came closest to dispatching Hitler with their legendary "Attentat" on July 20, 1944.

Most of the facts are extremely well-known, because the plotters did a good job of describing everything they did, and the Nazi investigators didn't miss a step in pursuing the conspirators after the bomb attempt failed. So even though this book dates back to the 1960s, the information it contains remains solid and accurate.

Even more solid is the level of writing and scholarship Roger Manvell and Heinrich Fraenkel brought to writing this book,which packs a great deal of information in a mere 175 pages, about the incredible bomb plot. It remains a staggering tale, which came within a footfall of success, undone by an unlucky move of a briefcase, and some fatal indecision by the plotters in Berlin. The prose is gripping and the story is that of a failed criminal caper in many ways.

Unlike most Ballantine books, there aren't too many maps -- just the Wolf's Lair and the conference room where Hitler nearly met his fate -- but the photographs meet the usual standard: the various plotters, some during their ghastly trials, and Hitler and his entourage at Rastenberg after the bomb exploded, touring the wreckage, greeting Mussolini, trying to look unharmed.

The assassination attempt on Hitler was an attempt by honorable Germans to save their nation, and the plotters deserve to be remembered with honor. This book is an excellent introduction to this attempt, and it shows the valor and tragedy of these courageous men. Highly recommended.

The Conspirators

Roger Manvell is the co-author of a series of biographical and social studies of the Nazis. He is the author or co-author of many books on film, television, and communications. This 1971 book has five chapters, a Bibliography, but no Index to its 160 pages. It is lavishly illustrated with photographs. The attempt to kill Hitler on 20 July 1944 is little known today. There were a number of conspiracies to assassinate Hitler, this is the best known. What if they had succeeded? Would it have changed the war? [I don’t think so.] The opponents of Hitler were never successful because of the power of the Secret Police (p.7). Hitler was elected Chancellor in 1933 after the arrests of many of his opponents (p.9). Conspiracy attempts by amateurs usually fail. Hitler’s control of the Army kept him in power, along with the support of the industrialists and the aristocracy.

Hitler’s bluff of war won the Munich Agreement (p.48). [No mention of intelligence sources of their failure.] The chapter “Resistance - the first generation” tells about the resistance to Hitler in the Army; nobody was prepared to act at that time. The conspirators hoped to remove Hitler and negotiate a peace before “Germany’s inevitable collapse” (p.87). The next chapter tells about the intrigues that went on. The Gestapo was suspicious and investigated. The German generals were reluctant to act. The following pages tell what happened on July 20, 1944. Hitler received minor injuries, four others were killed. Communication was halted to the outside. Stauffenberg’s strange behavior was noted. The revolt failed, the conspirators were arrested. Some were quickly shot (p.131). The ‘Aftermath’ tells of the fates of the conspirators. Some escaped arrest, those arrested were tortured to get confessions, then executed. The Allied armies kept on approaching. [What effect did this have on the morale of the soldiers and civilians?]

The plan of the generals was to eliminate Hitler, take over the government, and sign a treaty with Britain and America to fight against Soviet Russia. Was this even possible in 1944? Would public opinion allow this reversal? [I don’t think so.] If the conspirators believed this were they misled to create turmoil in Germany? Was Hitler and Nazism the worst plague in Europe since the Black Death? In October 1918 Kaiser Bill ordered the German Navy to make a suicide attack against the British Navy. The German sailors mutinied. This news caused revolts in Berlin and other cities in Germany. The Allies declared an Armistice to allow the German Army to suppress the revolts. The monarchy was abolished but other powerful forces remained in control. Conflicting interests led to political struggles. An orator attracted votes by promising a better life. You know how that worked out.
