”Valkyrie”
January 14th, 2008:
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.

  1. ”Valkyrie”January 14th, 2008: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. As German fortunes faltered in the later years of WWII, Stauffenberg decided to take action. In 1944, he and a handful of co-conspirators in army ranks hatched an extremely ambitious high-risk, high-reward plan to remove the Nazis from power and to end the war. Unfortunately, his plan was not successful and led to his execution. However, his actions did show the world that Fascists were do not represent all the German people. In post war Germany he was recognized as a hero of an era when the country had so many villains. His actions have been publicized countless times in his home country in many books, movies and documentaries, yet his story has not really been told on an international stage as of yet. That is all going to change in 2008 with the release of Valkyrie, a big budget Hollywood movie about the July 20th plot to kill Hitler. This movie will give a suspenseful account of the planning and assassination, as well as the heroism of those involved. It is the type of movie that will truly entertain and enlighten people about this monumental event and make the German people proud of their hero: Claus Von Stauffenberg. 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. His personal morals and religious beliefs prevented him from supporting such amoral behavior. He soon became involved in the German underground that opposed the Fascist regime. From 1942 on, he was actively involved in various plots to assassinate the dictator. Then in 1943 he suffered a huge setback while serving in Africa; his jeep was strafed by allied airplanes causing him to lose a total of seven fingers and his left eye. He took the injuries in good humor and never allowed them to slow him down. This is where the movie picks up his story. Upon his return to Germany, he began to plan Operation Valkyrie with other sympathetic officers in the German military. The plan consisted of two phases. First the assassination of Hitler with a suitcase bomb placed at his feet. Then seizing control of the government and eliminating all of Hitler’s institutions like the Gestapo and SS. Everything depended on killing Hitler, since every soldier in the German army swore a personal allegiance to the dictator, and the only way to release them from this oath was to kill him.-WORST PREVIEWS COM
