Publisher's Summary

In 1933, Adolf Hitler became Chancellor of Germany. A year later, all parties but the Nazis had been outlawed, freedom of the press was but a memory, and Hitler's dominance seemed complete. Yet over the next few years, an unlikely clutch of conspirators emerged - soldiers, schoolteachers, politicians, diplomats, theologians, even a carpenter - who would try repeatedly to end the Fuhrer's genocidal reign. This dramatic and deeply researched book tells the full story of those noble, ingenious, and doomed efforts. This is history at its most suspenseful, as we witness secret midnight meetings, crises of conscience, fierce debates among old friends about whether and how to dismantle Nazism, and the various plots themselves being devised and executed.

Very enlightening.

After viewing Valkrie, this was extremely interesting and enlightening. I would recommend this to anyone interested in the resistance movement against Hitler. The Narrator was good, he pronounced german names well.

Comprehensive and Detailed

Where does The Plots Against Hitler rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Probably the best book about the various plots to kill Hitler I've come across.

What other book might you compare The Plots Against Hitler to, and why?

I can compare this book to those by Ian Kershaw for it's breadth of scholarship and detailed research.

The story of Valkyrie is told in great detail together with it's tragic aftermath. Also the analysis of the motives of the plotters at the end of the book brings out the differences between them.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It's too long to listen in one sitting, but each of the chapters deserves to be listened to, absorbed, and thought about.
