In this elegant but unflinching testimony, Philipp von Boeselager, until his death in the last surviving member of the plot code-named Valkyrie, gives voice to the spirit of the small but determined band of men whose sense of justice and honor could not be dissolved by the diabolical glamour of the Third Reich. Here is an invaluable new perspective on one of the most fascinating near misses of twentieth-century history.

Sort order. Jun 13, Janet rated it liked it Shelves: history , finished , non-fiction. Not because it was fascinating, or well-written, or had lots of gory details, but because it made me think. As many earlier reviewers have noted, the book does not center on the assassination attempt itself.
Instead it focuses on the conditions that led the two brothers to join the plot and the conditions under which the plotters carried out the assassination. Thus the vast majority of the book is devoted to the war experiences of the two brothers. In this memoir, first published in , the author recalls that as a young military recruit in the s, he was largely unaware of the Nazi persecution of Jews and gypsies.
But as a young soldier, he assumed that the generals would put an end to this nonsense and the offenders would be brought to justice. In short, at this point he saw Kristallnacht as an isolated incident, rather than part of a systematic state program of persecution. But once transferred to the Eastern front, he realized this was not in fact the case.
In , while stationed on the Eastern front, he overheard a general nonchalantly describing how he had ordered the summary execution of thousands of Jews and gypsies. The general identified this "liquidation" as his "mission. To his credit, the author does not try to draw a clear line between the actions of the SS and those of the Wehrmacht. And yet, his narrative of the war emphasizes German superiority vis-a-vis their Russian adversaries, whom he repeatedly labels as barbarians.
It is these disorienting moments in the narrative that I found the most fascinating and informative, as they provide insight both into the attitudes of the German military leadership -- one that went to great pains to distance themselves from Nazi etiquette refusing to adopt the Hitler salute , and yet obediently carried out Hitler's murderous war on the Eastern front. Those who joined the conspiracy did so for varied reasons. For a few, such as the two brothers, the German army's engagement in criminal behavior e.
But for most, the motive was to save German lives, rather the lives of their victims. As one general noted, if we do nothing, each day another 16, German soldiers will die. In fact, the officers involved in the conspiracy, including the author, saw their primary duty as protecting their troops and ensuring that they made it home alive.
Given they were largely stationed on the Eastern Front, their organizational efforts were hampered by the need to fight the war and protect the troops under their charge. They also had limited access to Hitler. The author spends much energy describing the military campaigns in which he took part. His pride in his unit is apparent, as he recounts the German army's successes despite the numerical superiority of Russian troops.
Repeatedly, he gives the death toll for German soldiers, but makes little note of Russian deaths, except to mention that their officers were known to kill their own troops. Nor does the author spend much time on the victims of Nazism. Thus, it has been surprising to read so many reviews celebrating the conspirators as "heroes", when in fact their story is not so black and white.
It is marred by multiple shades of gray, as most real stories of "heroism" are. Almost all the conspirators shared a conservative, nationalist perspective and an aristocratic background. As such, they were not champions of equality. Moreover, several of the conspirators were later implicated in Nazi war crimes and in crimes against humanity. For example, the Quartermaster of the Army, Eduard Wagner, who supplied the escape aircraft, had coordinated Einsatzgruppen cooperation with the army and created the plans to starve Soviet prisoners of war, resulting in millions of deaths.
Arthur Nebe, another member of the plot, had commanded Einsatzgruppe B in the Soviet Union, responsible for the murder of over 45, Jews. These "gray areas" are an important reminder of the dangers of oversimplifying the past and the need to teach critical reading skills. View 2 comments.

Other people have pointed out that, though they went into the book looking for a hero of anti-Nazism, they came out with something more patriotic than that. But the thing is, the Boeslegaers and Tresckow and Kluge all stayed in the German army. After the assassination attempts end, Philipp keeps fighting for Germany - not for Nazi Ge Other people have pointed out that, though they went into the book looking for a hero of anti-Nazism, they came out with something more patriotic than that.
After the assassination attempts end, Philipp keeps fighting for Germany - not for Nazi Germany, I have to assume, but for "the boys" in the cavalry, the ones he is determined to get home alive, at the expense of Soviet and, presumably, other lives. There's no defection, no determination to stop being a part of Hitler's army. It's interesting! I'm neither condemning nor praising von Boeselager for why he did what he did.
He mentions himself that the deepest horrors of the Nazi regime were frequently unknown even to higher-ranking officials like Kluge. I think it's easy to look for black-and-white heroes and villains in the nightmare that was World War II, the way we get in the movies. Maybe it's equally necessary and moral, though, to realize that most people aren't heroes.
Sometimes people do good things for complicated reasons. All we can do now is appreciate their efforts, any efforts, against evil, and maybe try to do a little better ourselves. This is a memoir of Philipp von Boeselager, who is the last surviving member of the Bomb Plot to assassinate Hitler. It seem to me to be ghost written. The plot is just a relatively simple memoir illuminating a faction of the German Wehrmacht and one influential militaristic family.
It becomes readily clear that Philipp's role was very much an external one, so he doesn't have much to say that is of general interest. I felt that the plot to kill Hitler is barely mentioned in the book. The me This is a memoir of Philipp von Boeselager, who is the last surviving member of the Bomb Plot to assassinate Hitler. The memoir mainly dealing with Philipp and his talented brother and mostly on their military experience.
Fairly short story that deals on emotional, powerful and engaging sense of the circumstances under which German officers came to see Hitler as evil. It highlights the difference between the German military and the SS and the Nazis. Even though it is a little light on some of the specifics of Operation Valkyrie but it provides a unique perspective of the time while showcasing the honour and dignity of some very brave men. So, so, excellent. It was informative and fascinating. Unlike many war books, this was written clearly and all made sense.
I've always been fascinated with 'Valkyrie' and I loved seeing some of the behind-the-scenes of others involved. This is not another book about the plot to kill Hitler, known as Operation Valkyrie. It's much more than that; this book is the testimony of one of the millions of soldiers who took part in the greatest war humankind has ever known, a soldier who was wounded five times, including shot twice, a Wehrmacht officer who puts aside any cowardice or desire to play innocent by recognizing that even since he had heard of cold-blooded crimes against minorities such as gypsies and Hebrews.
And that, m This is not another book about the plot to kill Hitler, known as Operation Valkyrie. And that, my friends, is not something you wil hear too often from a German war veteran! What is really interesting about this book is the way the personal life story of Boeselager brothers intertwines with the Great History, in such a simple, coherent and sincere narrative manner.
It almost appears that the plot against Hitler is merely the author's excuse to tell his fabulous life story, as P. In that respect, the title of the book could be a little bit deceiving, as this is not a history study, but a personal testimony of the facts. That is why, ideally, all three of them had to be together when the attempt would happen. After that, a real coup d'etat would be in motion, avoiding as much as possible the risk of a civil war.
Unfortunately, we all know what really happened, at a popular level also thanks to Bryan Singer's movie. On a personal level, I found quite interesting the parts where P. He also emphasizes the relation between horsemen and their loyal and fearless horses.
I found those parts really touching, as they reminded me of the beautiful Steven Spielberg movie, "War Horse". Even more interesting is the mention even in passing of the German bycicle units and their active role on the front, something that I knew nothing so far. To sum up, this was a very enjoyable reading, the rough story of a genuine soldier, a story which could be of each and every World War II soldier. Despite only giving this three stars, I would recommend this book to everyone.
Mostly because of the different perspective it gives. It is a chronicle of two brothers from the beginning of the Third Reich to the final defeat. Philipp Freiherr von Boeselager describes his, and his brother's, shift from loyal soldiers to active assassins. He doesn't sugar coat his struggles nor make himself the hero. Actually he understates his involvement in the whole plot.
There are not a lot of details of the Despite only giving this three stars, I would recommend this book to everyone. There are not a lot of details of the actual assassination attempt. Because of his duties, he was separated from the heart of the conspiracy, but what he did was enough to, had it become known, to have him tortured and killed. Reading about the everyday activities of a German officer during the war was very different, but interesting.
What struck me the most was his belief, early in the war, that genocide could not happen because it was a civilized nation. While he does eventually recognize that the ultimate problem is a lack of morals, and greatly respects the religious men in the Army, he recognizes the root of the problem is 'civilizations' rejection of God as the final authority for morals.
Not that it will be easy. Very glad I read this. Fascinating insight into the psyche of the German military and their predicament in overthrowing the regime. During the Second World War, amid the conflagration, death, and destruction, there were a few German soldiers who had the guts to stand up to Hitler and tried their best to resist and put an end to his and his minions' abomination.
Philipp von Boeselager and his brother, Georg, were two such men. Both were officers in the Wehrmacht the German army. They were upright, competent officers and devout Catholics who were revolted by the Nazis' atrocities against so-called undesirables, including Cath During the Second World War, amid the conflagration, death, and destruction, there were a few German soldiers who had the guts to stand up to Hitler and tried their best to resist and put an end to his and his minions' abomination.
They were upright, competent officers and devout Catholics who were revolted by the Nazis' atrocities against so-called undesirables, including Catholics. They and other soldiers who were repulsed by the Nazis went about doing their military duties, but they still found the time and the courage to resist and eventually to try to kill Hitler, Himmler, and other high-ranking Nazis. Boeselager's memoirs seem to be an honest narrative of his participation in the several unsuccessful plots to assassinate Hitler, including the one on 20 July He did not inflate his own role and helped clarify some of my questions regarding the assassination plots, like why the plotters did not just shoot Hitler outright at close range and explained how the men mentally grappled with the idea of killing a tyrant.
It is a testament to their moral uprightness that they found killing another person, even a tyrant, in cold blood to be crossing a moral line. They may have failed, but they showed the world that there were Germans who did not sit idly, but took action against a madman intent on destruction.
In the midst of a situation where there is so much evil, is it possible for a good person to maintain his values and integrity upright? It is. Are there men like Boeselager in the North Korean military? View 1 comment. This book should be read in conjunction with Treason the book an Ebook currently featuring in parts on Facebook. I wanted to read this book to ascertain whether it was true that not all German people loved and wanted Hitler. There are many instances of various people quoted in this book apart from the author and his family themselves.
The circumstances leading to the plot s are long and the narrative is more of a memoir. The reference to place names would have made more sense with a ma since This book should be read in conjunction with Treason the book an Ebook currently featuring in parts on Facebook. The reference to place names would have made more sense with a ma since it is assumed that you are aware of the places mentioned in the book.
What struck me was the upright and religious Catholic spirit of the author and others mentioned in the book e. The Nazis were against religion and astonished the staunch christians when they removed crucifixes from the schools in July , pg A mention was made of bishop of Munster Von Galen through whom the T4 programme euthanasia was stopped pg It was not only me that asked the question was the assassination attempt on Hitler really necessary in mid ?
Even Von Stauffenberg asked the same question to Tresckow a few days before the assassination pg his reply says it all '' the assassination has to take place whatever the cost. Even if it doesn't succeed we have to try. Now it is no longer the object of the assassination that matters but rather to show the whole world and history that the German resistance movement dared to gamble everything, even at the risk of its own life.
All the rest, in the end ,is merely secondary. The notes at the back could have been better understood if had they the page number alongside.

First person accounts are important when studying history, though it must be understood that prejudices and personal beliefs cause the record to be altered throughout. This book tells a tale of brave, young soldiers and their wise, traditional, honorable commanders attempts to restore Germany to it's rightful place as a World power.
Their resistance to Nazism in all its forms and their ultimate attempt to remove Hitler that failed. Obviously, some important events were smoothed over, the Holocau First person accounts are important when studying history, though it must be understood that prejudices and personal beliefs cause the record to be altered throughout.
Obviously, some important events were smoothed over, the Holocaust for instance, as they had nothing to do with it, and "could not" do anything to prevent it while Hitler was in power. Excuses aside, this book was interesting, a view point many Western readers do not get exposed to very often; the experiences of a German soldier during World War II.
For this reason it is an important book to be read. Though all should know facts as to what was omitted. Apr 08, Robert Rouse rated it really liked it. First time I have read a book about World War II from the German point of view this is the story of operation Valkyrie the conspiracy to assassinate Hitler, the author Philipp Von Boeslager the main conspirator along with his brother was the sole survivor and kept it a secret even from his wife until the end of the war.
Very enjoyable read which I recommend. Mar 25, Suzanne Stroh rated it it was amazing Shelves: top-shelf , memoir , wwii. A tale of moral courage that had me on the edge of my seat from start to finish. Could not put it down. This is the gripping memoir of a young, dutiful German cavalry officer on the eastern front in World War II.
Raised in privilege with a military heritage, educated in military academies and religious institutions, he is the model soldier. But war holds no glamor. First disillusioned, and then outraged, he feels torn between his duty to his freezing, starving men and their horses The author participated in Operation Valkyrie.
To say more would be to spoil the book. I was a young girl when I read of von Stauffenberg's plot to kill Hitler. It was daring; it was crazy; it was clearly a moral obligation of anybody who came to the same conclusions. I struggled with the concept of justifiable murder. The events were seared on my mind. But not until I read this book did I realize the full extent of the suicide mission these guys were on.
