520    Between 1942 and 1945 the British Intelligence Service 
       undertook an extraordinary surveillance operation. In the 
       sedate surroundings of Trent Park, a large mansion with 
       extensive grounds in North London, they used state of the 
       art bugging equipment to listen in on the private 
       conversations of captured high-ranking German officers. 
       Unlike the countless postwar interrogations, these were 
       unstructured conversations held freely among the officers,
       during which they touched upon the most sensitive issues. 
       The officers discuss the July Plot of 1944, the failed 
       attempt to assassinate Hitler, collaboration with the 
       enemy, and their experience of German war crimes. In this 
       major new work Professor Neitzel has examined these 
       incredible transcripts in depth for the first time. His 
       findings address important questions regarding the 
       officers' attitudes towards the German leadership and Nazi
       policies: How did the German generals judge the overall 
       war situation? From what date did they consider it lost? 
       How did they react to the attempt on Hitler's life in July
       1944? What knowledge did they have of the atrocities, 
       either through their own experiences or based on the 
       reports of others? Includes biographies of all the German 
       officers who appear in the transcripts. This research is a
       must for any serious scholar of the period and anyone 
       interested in exploring the truth behind the image of an 
       'unblemished Wehrmacht'.--Jacket cover
