9781848325531: Ulrich von Hassell Diaries, 1938–1944: The Story of the Forces Against Hitler Inside Germany

Without doubt, Ulrich von Hassell was one of the most important members of the German Resistance: this is the first complete edition of his wartime memoir with new material from his grandson, Agostino von Hassell.

Von Hassell began working for the German Foreign Office in 1909, then aged 28. Two years later, he married Ilse von Tirpitz, the daughter of Grand Admiral Alfred von Tirpitz. After being wounded in the First Battle of the Marne, he worked as the Admiral’s advisor and private secretary.

Hassell joined the Nazi Party in 1933, but strongly opposed the Anti-Comintern Pact (1937) and was sacked by Ribbentrop from his posting in Rome. After Poland was attacked, he led a delegation to allay European fears of further German aggression. He participated in plans to overthrow Hitler, acting as a liaison between Carl Goerdeler, Ludwig Beck and the Kreisau Circle and attempted to recruit Halder, Fromm and Rommel to the idea of a military coup then a negotiated peace. He also used his position on the Central European Economic Congress committee to discuss with Allied officials what could follow a coup d’état in Germany. He played the role of a principal civilian advisor in the July Plot of 1944 and was executed after a two-day trial.

Book Description Frontline. 1 Cloth(s), 2011. hard. Book Condition: New. Perhaps the foremost civilian contributor to the July 1944 assassination attempt on Adolf Hitler—dubbed Operation Valkyrie—Ulrich von Hassell had been a member of the Nazi Party until Germany's 1937 pact with Japan. In diaries beginning with his presence at party rallies in 1938 and ending just two months prior to his 1944 execution, von Hassell gives frank assessments of the Nazi elite and the war, as well as the inside track on the network of collaborators who risked everything to topple Hitler. Along with 16 pages of black and white photographs, the book contains a chronology, an introduction by World War II expert Richard Overy, and a foreword by von Hassell's grandson. 339.
