Mylar cover on jacket. German author's fictional account of the plot to assassinate Hitler.
July 20, 1944 was a turning point in the history of Nazi Germany, one of those days which people interested in this period of history never forget - the attempt to assassinate Hitler that day failed but, as subsequent events revealed, the Nazi scene had changed overnight.
Much has been written by historians about the failed plot. This book, however, is different. Although described as a novel, the dates, events and facts relating to the plot are in essence authentic. Hans Hellmut Kirst (1914-1989), one of the most widely read German writers of his day, not just in Germany, has covered this period in many of his other works, and knew how to depict history in works of fiction, as he has done here as well, to make it more interesting for everyone, and written in language that every reader should be able to understand.
This book is based on fact, but those not conversant wih the facts behind the plot of 'the 20th of July', the title of this book, should find it a gripping 'novel'.
