David Stone tells the story of the progressive demise of the German general staff, from its revival and rearmament in 1935 to its downfall in the final years of the Second World War. The study examines why the army high command entered into its ‘unholy alliance’ with the National Socialists and Hitler; traces the worsening relationship as the war progressed; and analyses the general staff’s role in von Stauffenberg’s 1944 assassination attempt and the failed Operation Valkyrie.
