For twelve years Adolf Hitler ruled Germany with an iron fist.
It was the period of the “good” German, where most were going along with the regime, controlled by the strident coercion of state propaganda or the brutality of the SS, overcome by lethargy or convinced that Hitler and his juggernaut were Germany’s destiny.
But not all Germans. A few belonged, in the words of Winston Churchill, to the “greatest and most noble group in the political history of our times”. This is the story of these few who tried, by their own hand, to change the course of history by assassinating Hitler. As one failure followed another — sometimes because of technical malfunctions, more often because of Hitler’s legendary animal instinct for danger — new assassins arose, driven to try again.
In To Kill Hitler, Herbert Molloy Mason investigates what it was that drove the would-be assassins on.
Herbert Molloy Mason (1927-2013) was a noted writer of military history, and has written sixteen books, including The Lafayette Escadrille and The Rise of the Luftwaffe. He lived in San Antonio, Texas with his wife who was an artist.
