About the Show

Yet like most German army officers, Claus Schenk, Count von Stauffenberg, was at first a fascinated observer of Hitler's rise and his early military successes in Europe. So what turned an ambitious officer from an old aristocratic family into the mastermind of a coup d'etat? This documentary seeks to answer these questions.
