Description by Ryko Distribution:
On 20th July 1944, a bomb exploded in the briefing room of Wolf s Lair, the Fuhrer s Eastern Front HQ. Although it was only a few feet away from Adolf Hitler, he miraculously survived, to wreak bloodthirsty vengeance on the whole of the German resistance movement. This is the story, horrific, tragic, but also at times almost comical of the most serious attempt to assassinate the warlord. This is the story of Operation Valkyrie, the plan to kill Hitler, which he himself had approved!
