Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The July 20, 1944, plot to kill Hitler has received much historical attention from historians (and lately from Hollywood, in the recent eponymous film starring Tom Cruise), and this slim volume adds a little to that literature. As a rare firsthand memoir by a participant, this narrative gives a personal account of the events and conspirators' motives. The first half of the book is less thriller than an account of von Boeselager's military exploits leading a German cavalry division on the Russian front, and illustrates his growing disillusionment with the Nazi regime. He and his brother Georg, a fellow army leader and co-conspirator, were persuaded to join the plot co-hatched by Col. Henning von Tresckow. Readers already familiar with the history of Valkyrie will gain an insider's perspective, the portrait of a man of honor and independent mind, but readers new to the subject may want to read this along with histories of the plot. 17 photos.

Review

“Memorable. . . . This book deserves your time because of its fascinating story, plainly but sharply told, of an individual in an extraordinary situation.”
The New York Times Book Review

“Remarkable. . . . An astonishing memoir. . . . Of real significance to Second World War historians.”
Daily Telegraph (London)

“Boeselager’s book doesn’t tarry in the realm of might-have-been. Instead, it explores reality—the importance of making accessible to future generations the full truth of history.”
The Christian Science Monitor

“An extraordinary memoir. . . . A one-of-a-kind eyewitness account, essential for students of the Third Reich and all champions of freedom against tyranny.”
Booklist

“Celebrates a long-since-vanished generation of scholar-warriors. . . . von Boeselager [was] both intelligent and honourable.”
—Daily Mail (London)

“[A] brisk, illuminating description of how one German solider struggled to reconcile his profound religious and moral sensibility with his cavalryman’s patriotic code of honour and thereby became part of this conspiracy.”
—Daily Express (London)
