Description
On July 20, 1944, Colonel Claus Schenk Graf von Stauffenberg was executed in the courtyard of the Third Reich's military headquarters in Berlin for attempting to assassinate Adolf Hitler. Most discussions of German resistance during World War II end here, with the failed Operation Valkyrie plot, but as the author of Fire and Fury chronicles here, this was far from the last act of resistance to the Nazi regime from within Germany. Taking the form of disobedience rather than outright revolution, these acts ranged from the refusal to destroy Paris and key locations in southern France to the unwillingness to employ a scorched-earth policy on German soil, and resulted in a more profound and lasting effect on the war than Stauffenberg's attempt.

"[The book] offers stories not often told. They are stories about the falling apart of a totalitarian state and the opening of personal choice for those with the courage to disobey. Ordinary people are given brief chances for heroism that only sometimes ends well."Seattle Times
