Many books have been written on the topic of "why Germany lost the War" - or, conversely, "why the Allies won". This book, originally published in German in 1952, exposes a vitally important, but often underestimated factor: the German traitors who worked to destroy the German Reich from within. Their attempted assassination of Adolf Hitler on July 20, 1944 was only the tip of the iceberg. More and more, it appears that the Allies would not have been victorious without their help - and that, in fact, the war might never even have come about without their machinations!

The author is aware that his opinion contrasts sharply with those that are currently popular. Nevertheless he claims for his motivation precisely the maxim expressed by Karl Goerdeler, one of the leaders of the Resistance: "Despite the smoke screen of propaganda, the German people must be told the truth, and nothing but the truth."
