The failed 1944 'Valkyrie' plot to assassinate Hitler is evidence of a strand of resistance to the Nazi regime that existed within the German army and among German civilians. Here, Randall Hanson describes how dissenting voices were silenced, how a number of key officers and officials defied the Fuhrer's direct orders to destroy everything they could in retreat and how, by disobeying Hitler, they saved lives and delivered historic cities and cultural landmarks from annihilation.
