Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As an important American figure on the outside of Germany working in Switzerland, Dulles might have given us information not found elsewhere. Instead, he merely provides sketches of the important conspirators, gives some background, explains their part in the plot to kill Hitler or coax the West to support an overthrow of the Nazis, and explains that the conspirators either escaped the ensuing manhunts after July 20, 1944, or that they were tortured and executed. He provides a short description of how the Church was reduced to passive resistance, how the Germans might have chosen the East for salvation rather than the West, and how even Himmler and Goring aspired to step into the Fuhrer's shoes. The book is a mere skeleton of information found in greater detail in other books, especially Hans Gisevius "To the Bitter End." If you need your books brief and to read like outlines, this will serve. If you would prefer to read something like an insider's account, try Gisevius.
