On July 20th, 1944, a bomb, planted by the high-ranking German officer, Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg, exploded in the briefing room of Wolf's Lair, Adolf Hitler's Eastern Front HQ. Although the device was planted only a few feet away from the Fuhrer, he miraculously survived to wreak bloodthirsty vengeance on the whole German resistance movement. This is the story, horrific, tragic, but also at times almost comical of the most serious attempt to assassinate the warlord. This is the story of Operation Valkyrie, the plan to kill Hitler, which he himself had approved! Also included is an interview with Nigel Jones, author of the book 'Countdown to Valkyrie'. Nigel provides unique access to information known only to Stauffenberg's family.
