Book Description

‘Trott was a brave and honourable man, a passionate patriot, incapable of anything ignoble or unworthy, and he served what he regarded as being the deepest interests of his own countrymen and decent people everywhere' - Sir Isaiah Berlin

Almost seventy years after the July plot to kill Hitler there is still controversy about the motives of the conspirators.

Adam von Trott zu Solz was at the centre of that plot.

In this acclaimed biography Giles MacDonogh examines the idealism and patriotism that were essential parts of Trott's character.

Trott worked tirelessly to find support for the German resisters but his patriotism was misinterpreted by some of his British and American contacts.

The Allies refused to aid Trott and his fellow conspirators, missing the chance both to remove Hitler and to end the war early.

After the failure of the bomb plot Trott and his friends were subjected to show trials and then brutally executed.

This is the authoritative biography of a tragic and heroic man, one of the few Germans who stood up to Hitler's tyranny and was not afraid to die for his principles.
'A well-researched, well-written and important book' Godfrey Hodgson, The Independent

‘This is a hair-raising, risk-filled and extraordinary tale thrillingly told by MacDonogh'
Robert Carver, The Listener

Giles MacDonogh was born in London. He is the author of ‘After the Reich: From the Liberation of Vienna to the Berlin Airlift’, ‘Hitler’s Gamble’ and ‘Prussia: The Perversion of an Idea’.

Endeavour Press is the UK's leading independent publisher of digital books.

5.0 out of 5 stars "A good German" - A wonderful book 5 Jan. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
The name of Stauffenberg is known to all while the name of Adam von Trott has largely been forgotten. MacDonogh makes a plea for this brave and honourable man who sacrificed his life to rid Germany of Hitler.

5.0 out of 5 stars my view 11 Mar. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
very good book, gives lots of detail of events, I have read lots of these types of books in this one there are lots of people I didn't know about. it was a little heavy reading in the beginning but very informative, makes one wonder if the government wanted war as the British took no notice of attempts to bring war to an end, there is lots of evidence of with British help it could have ended years early even not at all I recommend this book fully
