Treason is a page-turning story of human drama, heroism and sacrifice. It is an intimate and compelling account of individual moral character and physical courage set against tumultuous events. It brings history alive.
Treason is the extraordinary true story of exceptional men and women who risked everything in their attempts to rid the world of the Nazi regime and end the Second World War. It is one of the twentieth century’s great narratives.
Treason presents a detailed, historically accurate, and intimate portrait of the extensive resistance within Germany to the Nazis.
From late 1943, the struggle against Hitler and the Nazis was led by Claus von Stauffenberg a brilliant staff officer in the German Army.
On 20 July 1944 Stauffenberg placed a briefcase bomb in Hitler’s briefing hut at the Wolf’s Lair, flew back to Berlin, and then directed an insurrection against the Nazi regime. The plotters wrested control of Paris and Vienna, and briefly, Berlin.
When it became clear that Hitler had survived the conspiracy unravelled.
At the time of his attempt, Claus von Stauffenberg was just 36 years old. He was married with four children. His wife was pregnant with their fifth. Claus also had a glittering career ahead of him, yet he was prepared to risk everything to restore moral integrity to his country.
Two books in one, Treason is both a gripping story and the world’s first dynamically interactive history book.
Treason includes more than 500 images, 300 linked personal and organisational profiles, and a dozen animated maps and diagrams, along with 29 video clips, all tied together with a compelling page-turning narrative.
Treason takes the reader to the heart of dramatic events, with an immediacy never before achieved.
Treason – Claus von Stauffenberg and the Plot to Kill Hitler was created for you to experience on your iPad, and is only available through the iBooks Store.

Fifteen years in the making!
Brian has been exploring this story of courage for fifteen years. He is a mate so I am biased, but I think this is what all history books wil be like in the future - alongside the authoritative text there are bits of film, interactive maps and quick links to a full rogues and heros gallery. It’s a great story, well told and a fitting epitaph for those brave people.
History comes alive!
Walters brings this major historical event alive with an incredibly readable and interactive account allowing the reader to enter into more detail as one wishes. A video, side-story, maps, images and biographical details are all available at a click taking you wherever you want to go, or you can read the entertaining and informative account and skip the detail. Either way its value for money and a compelling account from an author who not only knows his subject but tells it with his heart. A world-first and hard to top.
A Moving Book
