2004 US dramatised documentary about the Stauffenberg plot to kill Hitler. In July 1944, a group of high ranking German army officers decided that they had to do something to prevent Hitler from carrying on the war and completely destroying Germany. Led by General Friedrich Olbricht, Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg (Brian Gurley) and General Friedrich Fromm (Kevin Garrett), the conspirators devised Operation Valkyrie, a plan to infiltrate a bomb into Hitler's inner sanctum, the Wolf's Lair near Rastenburg, East Prussia. The documentary also includes rare colour film footage and an interview with Philipp Baron von Boeselager, the last surviving member of the plot.
