Inhalt

Valkyrie

Germany, the year 1943: Appalled by the downfall of his home country under Hitler′s rule and the waging war, German army officer Claus Graf Schenk von Stauffenberg joins a resistance group dedicated to end the regime of the "Fuhrer". Many of the group′s key members are high-ranking officers of the Wehrmacht, seeking to assassinate Hitler and to take the crucial command of the troops. Employing Hitler′s very own emergency plan, dubbed "Operation Valkyrie", Stauffenberg and his comrades hope to trick Nazi bureaucracy into surrendering all power to them. On July 20th 1944, they make their move: A bomb is planted and detonated in a bunker during Hiter′s visit. But albeit near perfect planning, events take a different course.
