July 20th

Postby Rhah » Wed Jul 20, 2011 10:45 pm

Well today in history, 67 years ago, Lieutenant Colonel Claus Schenk Graf von Stauffenberg tried to bump off Hitler and a few others in the Wolf's lair. It didn't work and von Stauffenberg was put against a wall and shot. RIP.

Stauffenberg's family was mighty pissed off by that whole thing

No he was put against a wall. Some of the more senior officers who were involved in the plot, names escape me at the moment, they were hung with piano wire. Supposedly filmed too, but I don't think that's ever been proven to be true.
