From 1919 onwards, there were many people who wanted to kill Hitler. But when he became Chancellor of Germany in 1933, the desire became more urgent. After all, what do you do when the leader of your country has destroyed all political freedoms, annexed all power and is leading all of its people towards destruction? This is a story of all the plots against Hitler, of secret meetings in freezing fields, of bombs in briefcases, of conspiracies against the life of the Fuhrer, with a cast-list of soldiers, senior politicians, members of the resistance, schoolteachers, theologians, and even a humble carpenter. In all, there were more than 32 attempts against Adolf Hitler's life and this book documents every doomed effort to dismantle the Nazi machine by striking off its head.
