Documentary about the failed plot by members of the German High Command to assassinate Hitler on June 20th 1944.

Documentary about the remarkable events surrounding the July 20 plot of 1944, a failed attempt by members of Germany’s High Command, led by Claus von Stauffenberg, who dared to try and stop Adolf Hitler by assassinating him and take power by means of a plan called Operation Walkure (or ‘Valkyrie’).

The key role in this drama, was played by Wehrmacht Heer officer Claus von Stauffenberg who was in charge of the German Reserve Armys Walre, a role which allowed him direct access to Hitler. On 20th July 1944, Stauffenberg placed a briefcase packed with explosives in Hitlers private bunker. Despite the bunker being totally destroyed, the Nazi Leader managed to escape. The failure of this assassination attempt, which could have brought an end to the war, led to the arrest of more than 5,000 people and to subsequent execution of about 200, including Stauffenberg. Through reconstructed interviews, taken from the diaries of the key participants, including von Stauffenberg and Adolf Heusinger, along with rare archive footage, this documentary is a fascinating insight into one of the little known chapters of World War Two.
