The thriller is based on actual events, as German generals hatch a scheme to assassinate Adolph Hitler at the height of WWII.
What to Expect:
The phrase “history will judge us” cannot be any truer than when applied to Claus von Stauffenberg. Stauffenberg was an officer in the German army during World War II, but unlike many of his compatriots, he refused to except Nazi dogma. Instead he continued to serve his country, while secretly opposing Hitler and his henchmen.
Stauffenberg came from one of the richest and most distinguished Roman Catholic families in Germany. As a result, he enjoyed the finest education that money and family connections could afford him. Then in 1930, in accordance with family tradition, Stauffenberg joined the military, which happened to be same time that Hitler and the Nazis came to power. From the onset he did not agree with most of their policies in regards to religion and minorities, but did agree with the nationalistic agenda of conquest especially in Poland. He continued to practice his religion although it was discouraged by the Nazi party. As the war progressed Stauffenberg witnessed more and more atrocities first hand, becoming even more disillusioned with Hitler’s policies.
Upon his return to Germany, he began to plan Operation Valkyrie with other sympathetic officers in the German military.
