Long before the famous 'Valkyrie' plot of 1944 or the assassination schemes that were hatched by the Allies, an attempt was made on the life of Adolf Hitler at a Nazi Party rally held in Munich in November 1939. This book tells the story of ordinary carpenter Georg Elser, who on his own initiative hid a bomb behind the speaker's podium at the event, only failing to kill Hitler and other high-ranking Nazis because of a last-minute change of timings.
