About the Book

Germany’s aristocratic Schulenburg family were irreconcilably divided over Hitler—some followed him devoutly while others joined the Resistance. One brother was decorated with the Knight’s Cross of the Iron Cross, the Third Reich’s highest military award. Another recruited Hitler’s would-be assassin for Operation Valkyrie.
This book chronicles the untold history of the Schulenburgs, whose clashes at the apex of German society illustrate the complex relationship between Nazis and the nobility. Their story spans the airborne campaigns and war crimes through Holland, Crete, Russia, Italy and Normandy, as seen through the eyes of warring siblings.
