The German Opposition to Hitler. An Appraisal

by Hans Rothfels
Hinsdale, Illinois, Henry Regnery Company, 1948.
Hardback with dust wrapper. The B&W portrait on the front panel of the jacket shows Lt. General Paul von Hase listening to his death sentence as he was condemned to death in 1944 for being part of a conspiracy to assassinate Hitler.

"More than a study of resistance among the upper ranks, author Hans Rothfels examines the unprecedented totalitarian state, armed with mid-20th century modern weapons, science and industry. Professor Rothfels illustrates the true extent of the German resistance, its composition, aim, and the nature of its intent. He also considers the whole question of moral and practical problems involved in opposing a totalitarian regime."
-- Publisher's blurb for the Arcole Publishing's 2018 edition of this work

Originally at the University of Konigsberg, Hans Rothels was later Professor of Modern History at the University of Chicago and finally returned to West Germany. This book was first published in English and later published in Germany in German translation as Die deutsche Opposition gegen Hitler.
