Out of stock
Published to highlight the 80th anniversary of Georg Elser’s attempt to assassinate Adolf Hitler this book is essential reading for anyone with an interest in the anti-Nazi resistance.
Little is known today of the extent and intensity of the anti-Nazi activity that occurred inside Hitler’s Germany. Even less is known about those whose courage and conviction drove them to risk-and lose-everything to bring the Third Reich to an end.
Presented within the broader context of German history and contemporary world events, this comprehensive study relies on extensive historiography by noted scholars to produce a well-balanced, timely narrative of the German resistance to one of history’s most violent regimes. Traitors or Patriots? tells a story of incredible courage and conviction that transcends time and place-a story for our own time and for all time.
