Stauffenberg : a family history, 1905-1944 by Peter Hoffmann( )

55 editions published between 1992 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 3,132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines the extraordinary personality of Claus Count Stauffenberg, a key figure in the 1944 coup attempt against Hitler. Stauffenberg's personality is thrown into relief by a study of his two brothers and other family members and friends. The three Stauffenberg brothers, Berthold, Alexander, and Claus, were inseparable both emotionally and intellectually. Their view of human existence was rooted in their south-German aristocratic background, in classical antiquity, and in Christian culture. This 'family biography' describes how the brothers' professions and their political and military environments led them to take fundamental positions on their government's and Hitler's tyranny. Inevitably the book focuses on Claus Count Stauffenberg's military career and his fight to overthrow Hitler, culminating in the attempted assassination and coup of 20 July 1944. No other work has yet probed Stauffenberg's life and mind so deeply, or has offered such a comprehensive account of resistance to Hitler at the highest administrative level

Behind Valkyrie : German resistance to Hitler : documents by Peter Hoffmann( )

14 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 1,502 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A collection of writings by those who fought Hitler from within Nazi Germany. While the 'Valkyrie' plot by Nazi officers to kill Adolf Hitler is the best known instance of German opposition to his dictatorship, there were many other significant acts of resistance. Behind Valkyrie collects documents, letters, and testimonies of Germans who fought Hitler from within, making many of them available in their entirety and in English for the first time. Peter Hoffmann assembles the words of citizens protesting the National Socialists' dismantling of the first democratic German republic, socialists and conservatives arguing for civil liberties, and dissatisfied senior military officials. Behind Valkyrie's first-hand accounts of reactions to crimes by the SS, mistreatment of millions of Soviet prisoners of war, mass murder of Jews, and the mismanagement of military campaigns show that attempts to maintain freedom, justice, and human rights often came from unexpected sources. While not free of the prejudices of their time, these nearly forgotten voices help provide a more complete understanding of the range of dissent during one of history's most disturbing epochs"--Publisher's website

Hitler's personal security by Peter Hoffmann( Book )

20 editions published between 1973 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 698 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""I am immortal!" exulted Hitler, in the wake of the failed assassination attempt of July 20, 1944. As Peter Hoffmann shows in this book, that bombing was only the best known of more than thirty attempts on Hitler's life, the first coming as early as 1921, when he was the leader of the German worker's party. Using extensive archival material and a new, never-before-compiled itinerary of Hitler's wartime movements, Hoffmann details these assassination plots and outlines the fanatically complex security measures that were developed to keep Hitler safe. He analyzes Hitler's SS escort and the other security groups responsible for his life - there were so many of them that they often counteracted each other - together with their arrangements for his transportation, public appearances, residences, and wartime headquarters."--Jacket

The Hitler conspirator : the story of Kurt Freiherr von Plettenberg and Stauffenberg's Valkyrie plot to kill the Führer by Eberhard Schmidt( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kurt Baron von Plettenberg (1891-1945) was the descendant of Westphalian aristocratic family, and a soldier in both world wars. The expectations, which he along with many of his later fellow conspirators of the 20 July 1944 plot to kill Hitler initially had of the 'Third Reich', are soon disappointed, when he recognises the true nature of the regime. When he accepts the office as general agent of the former Prussian royal house of the Hohenzollerns in 1942, he already belongs to the inner circle of the resistance planning Operation Valkyrie. After the assassination attempt, however, he is not immediately discovered as one of the conspirators. Out of consideration for the house of Hohenzollern, which Hitler considers to be his most dangerous internal enemy, he acted more carefully than many others
