Produced in 2008, this 62-minute documentary delves into the events leading to the assassination of Hitler by Claus Von Stauffenberg.
The film features fascinating archive footage and photos, atmospheric recretaions of key events and new footage shot in the main plot locations as they are today.
It also features comment, analysis and opinions given by a specially chosen team of German historians and the thoughts of a former member of the German Communist Party.
If you're a Hitler buff, this ia a must-see.

(*Anti-Nazi chant*) - "Kill Hitler! Kill Hitler! Kill Hitler! Ra! Ra! Ra!"

Apparently - As the story goes - Prior to 1944's "Operation Valkyrie" going into effect to annihilate the Fuhrer (aka. Adolf Hitler) - There had already been assassination attempts made on the life of this vile, despicable dingleberry numerous times before.

And, yes - Just like "Operation Valkyrie", they were complete botch jobs (all due to an unbelievable incompetence) which, of course, led old "Leather Britches" to fancy himself as being the "Invincible One". (natch)

Through reenactments, stills, interviews, and some really excellent archival footage - This 60-minute history-documentary takes a close-up look at this particular bungled assassination attempt that, unfortunately, (after it was carried out) only served to inflate Hitler's already swelled head to the hideous proportions of a certified mega-monster.

Just backs up the accuracy of the Tome Cruise film, which I thought was very well done.
