Re: Memories of Claus von Stauffenberg

Most informative indeed-- Colonel (Oberst) Claus Von Stauffenberg was a decorated officer, being wounded in Africa (loss of an eye and most of his right hand) he was injured trying to protect his men-- No greater distinction can be given to an Officer that he "put the safety of his men before his own"!! A true hero, and only by a "twist of fate" (the briefcase being moved under a table leg when he left the conference room at the Wolf's Lair) did the madman escape the death he deserved.
