The outbreak of the Second World War found Phillipp von Boeselager, like many patriotic Germans, keen to avenge the humiliation of the Treaty of Versailles. Sickened by SS atrocities, however, he became convinced that his country must be liberated from the monster who held it in thrall and joined Von Stauffenberg's plot to assassinate Hitler. This honest and courageous memoir offers an unvarnished, blow-by-blow account of the doomed conspiracy that is a far cry from the sanitized Hollywood version. American-cut pages. Felt-tip mark on lower trimmed edge.
