TREASON - THE BOOK
With a compelling narrative, Treason provides a detailed and authoritative account of the German resistance to the Nazis. In a chronicle of drama, heroism and sacrifice, Treason outlines numerous attempts to assassinate Hitler and rid the world of Nazi oppression. This reached its climax on 20 July 1944, when Claus von Stauffenberg placed a bomb in Hitler's conference room, and led an insurrection across Germany.
Treason contains more than 500 photographs and is complemented by maps and diagrams.
Treason is an account of individual moral character and physical courage set against tumultuous events. It brings history to life.
This extraordinary true story of exceptional men and women who risked everything in their attempts to rid the world of the Nazi regime and end the Second World War is one of the twentieth century’s great narratives.
Treason will be released in July 2021.
