It is still controversial what motives and goals the German resistance against Hitler had.

It outlines their motives for opposing Hitler and their decision to join the plot to assassinate him.
This book reveals many similarities between Bonhoeffer and von Haeften, who gave their lives for their convictions, and underlines their significance in the resistance movement. Their resistance constitutes a shining example of responsible action, courage and faith.
