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 Hitlers 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 Fuhrers 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.

Orbachs fresh research takes advantage of his singular skills as linguist and historian to offer profound insight into the conspirators methods, motivations, fears, and hopes. Though we know how this story ends, weve had no idea until now how close it came several times to ending very differently. The Plots Against Hitler fundamentally alters our view of World War II and sheds bright even redemptive light on its darkest days.
