by Joachim C. Fest

27 Rothfels, German Opposition to Hitler. Similarly Tresckow stated:

'The assassination must be attempted at all costs. Even should that fail, the attempt to seize power in the capital must be undertaken. We must prove to the world and to future generations that the men of the German resistance movement dared to take the decisive step and to hazard their lives upon it. Compared with this object, nothing else matters' (ibid.).
