Stauffenberg - The True Story
Report a problem
He was a shining light in the German resistance movement. The bomb he placed at Hitlers headquarters could have put an end to war and genocide. But like most German army officers, Claus Schenk, Count von Stauffenberg, was at first a fascinated observer of Hitlers rise and his early military successes. It was a long road for this loyal follower of his commander-in-chief to become the man who tried to kill the Führer on 20 July 1944. How did it happen? What turned an ambitious officer from an old aristocratic family into the mastermind of a coup détat? As a companion piece to the upcoming motion picture, this documentary will answer these questions, based on the latest research about the German Resistance.
