Secret Germany

Hs of millions On July 20 he hid a bomb stuffed briefcase at a high level meeting The explosion tore through the room but a table leg spared Hitler from the blast The result was a witch hunt a wave of executions and a further pointless year of war Michael Baigent. I was pleasantly surprised by this book It gives a good portrait of the fascinating man Stauffenberg as well as and I didn t expect this a good overview of German literature and culture with good parts on Goethe Stefan George etc The authors seem to be well read and I really appreciated the parts where they discuss the struggle between rational and irrational in German culture In total the book gives you some insights into the enigmatic Stauffenberg as well as a interesting discussion on what the true meaning of courage honor and moral After reading it I felt refreshed and high in spirits Highly recommended as an introduction to Stauffenberg s life and ideas

And Richard Leigh deliver an exhilarating and definitive portrait of the anti Nazi movement called Secret Germany that almost killed Hitler Secret Germany is the story of World War II's boldest plot that failed Time a coup that was a moral and spiritual necessit. This book front loads the bomb plot then segues into a somewhat hagiographic biography of Stauffenberg and an extended section about his mentorspiritual leader s philosophy and poetry I like literary criticism but was not expecting itThere is some seriously over the top purple prose ex this creature continues to pollute the cosmos with his existence The authors also do themselves no favors with their extensive explanation of how Stauffenberg s mentor was not gay which came off as protesting way way too much
