  1. Damn if only that bomb they set is so much destructive then stauffenberg and everyone will live for long. A big salute to Col. Stauffeberg you will always be remembered as a hero of germany

    GERMAN OFFICER: FIRE!!!!
    (FIRES MAUSER KARABINER KAR98K)

  3. Here’s a dark post-event fact: Stauffenberg’s wife was pregnant at the time of his execution. Not only did their child have a posthumous birth, but she was arrested and gave birth in prison. In the meantime, their other children were placed in an orphanage.

  4. I see the Stauffenberg assassination attempt as a fake. The attack was orchestrated by Hitler. The Fuehrer telepathically ordered the assassination over the radio. Of course he knew telepathically on the radio that he was not allowed to go there. It was communicated to him that he was not allowed to go. The Nazis always telepathed nicely with it. An assassination attempt staged abroad.

  5. It’s probably a good thing this assassination didn’t succeed. Hitler might have been replaced with someone that wasn’t as inept in the late stage military planning, or someone that the allies were willing to negotiate with and leave the Nazis to rule Germany.

  6. what saved Hitler was the fact that they moved the conference into a hut with open windows away from the bunker where it was supposed to be due to the weather and if the bomb went off in the bunker the blast would have been contained and maximum damage would have been inflicted killing everyone in the room.

  7. The greatest mistake that they made is not making sure that the guy they want to assassinate actually died or double-tapped the guy (storming the room after the explosion and to actually kill hitler or him waiting outside and to throw a grenade or two inside the room at least in my opinion.
