Thomas  Karlauf - Stauffenberg


"Abstaining from any moral evaluation, very impressive and compelling analysis of Stauffenberg’s world of ideas."

Ian Kershaw

"A suspenseful, thrilling, courageous book."

Volker Rühe, Bundesverteidigungsminister a.D.

"This biography is sure to set off new discussions about the role and motives of the conspirators of July 20, 1944 … it will be interesting to see what happens."


"The 'earthly' Stauffenberg, as Karlauf memorably portrays him, is still a remarkable figure."

Der Spiegel

"a congenial book"

Neue Zürcher Zeitung

"Karlauf narrates densely, with verve, deftly combining report and reflection, close-up and perspective."


"The representation no longer breathes the shaky air of historical-political and ideological controversies, but is instead characterised by historicizing composure."

Frankfurter Rundschau

"Karlauf deconstructs a resistance myth of the Federal Republic Germany."

Frankfurter Allgmeine Woche
