Of all the men and moments that might have changed the course of history, Count von Stauffenberg and his ill-fated attempt to kill Adolf Hitler is perhaps the most vivid and agonising. In a brilliant tapestry of fact and imagination, Paul West uses his protagonist's solo voice to give an astounding new dimension to historical impersonation.
From the heroic dreams of the small boy curled up on the rim of the big fire-place in his family's castle, to the terrible moment of failure and beyond, Stauffenerg's hours are rich indeed.
