The authors, who have collaborated on books on Goebbels, Goering, and Himmler, here document the story of the plottings of certain German military intelligence (Abwehr) officers—led by Admiral Wilhelm Canaris—to overthrew Hitler. The authors made contact with every principal survivor of the Abwehr resistance movement, as well as with the families of those leaders who were arrested and executed when the plot war, discovered, in order to new material for this book. A generous bibliography is provided along with notes on the sources of information.
