On July 20, 1944, German army officer Claus von Stauffenberg and other conspirators attempted to assassinate Adolf Hitler inside his headquarters near Rastenburg, East Prussia.

After dozens of failed attempts to take Hitler’s life, several high-ranking German officials had formed a resistance unit to take him down and launch a coup to reclaim Germany from the Nazi forces.

Operation Valkyrie was then launched, and a plan was hatched to strike Hitler with a bomb as a desperate attempt to end the oppression and the war.

But Providence would be on the dictator’s side, as he claimed after walking out of a bombed conference room during a warm summer afternoon.
