Der Lautlose Aufstand and Geist Der Freiheit and 20. Juli 1944

By Günther Weisenborn and Eberhard Zeller and Hans Royce

Rowohlt and Rinn and Köllen, 1953, 348395216 pp.

Three books on the German opposition to Hitler. The first is largely a documentary collection concerning the actions and fate of the variety of groups, circles and movements which, in one fashion or another, worked against the Nazis between 1933 and 1945. The second is principally concerned with tracing the history of the abortive effort of July 20, 1944, the central figure of which was Count Claus von Stauffenberg. The third is a rather loosely organized assortment of articles and documents relating to the same attempt and its aftermath.
