I liked it, but it has some shortcomings
on 6 February 2016
The main problem here is that the author clearly worships Stauffenberg. For example, when Stauffenberg blatantly lies to his fellow conspirators that he saw "Hitler''s body being carried on a stretch", the author says that this was a forgivable exaggeration, and not what it really was: a straight lie to his own friends.
Also, he is REALLY opinionated, calling the Nazis all the the time "the coward so and so...", "the treacherous so and so...", "the fat so and so with his increasing belly..." and on and on. It gets boring after a time.
Anyway, there are some dense parts, with difficult reading or strange phrase constructions. But my general opinion is that one gets a lot of information about this sad subject, for the bucks you've spent in this book.
