Synopsis: In Nazi Germany during World War II, as the tide turned in favor of The Allies, a cadre of senior German officers and politicians desperately plot to topple the Nazi regime before the nation is crushed in a near-inevitable defeat. To this end, Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg, an Army officer convinced he must save Germany from Hitler, is recruited to mastermind a real plan. To do so, he arranges for the internal emergency measure, Operation: Valkyrie, to be changed to enable his fellows to seize control of Berlin after the assassination of the Fuhrer. However, even as the plan is put into action, a combination of bad luck and human failings conspire on their own to create a tragedy that would prolong the greater one gripping Europe.

if I die now,

I leave nothing to my children but shame.

I know now there is only one way

to serve Germany.

And doing so I'll be a traitor

I accept that.

Just tell me,

Can these men see it through?

We need to reorganize,

reconsider our strategy.

Recruit new men.

That's why we want you.

You understand what will happen to my wife and children,

if these men can't see it through?

Come and hear what they have to say.

You know where to find us.

Enough, enough. I am not gonna listen to another word of this.

You had your chance, you failed.

Your so-called central solution didn't work.

Our only option now is to confront Hitler openly

This is a military operation.

It is not a military operation,

it is a political organization.

And one that has given it's military arm too much control.

In any military exercise you have to expect a certain measure of deviation.

A measure?

What about total, complete, utter failure?

Gentlemen, i think it's time we faced the fact

The allies are coming come sooner or later.

I say we sit back and let them wipe out the Nazis.

And ask every living soul in Europe to pay the price. Use your head.

Carl, please.

- I'm sorry Ludwig, I've held my tongue too long.

We must now confront Hitler now.

Force him out.

And then what?

I beg your pardon?

When Hitler's gone, then what?

I'm sorry, who is this man?

Colonel Stauffenberg is Oster's replacement.

He's been transferred to my office,

at the War Ministry.

How is your uncle?

- He is well sir, he sends his regards.

He speaks very highly of you.

- And of you, General.

One of the things that made Oster such a great organizer,

Was that he kept his opinions to himself.

I am simply asking what you intend to do

when Hitler is gone.

You don't really believe you can just walk into the Reich chancellary
