Just finished watching Munich: The Edge of War

Fiction but how close one man came to assassinating Hitler before he started WWII. One man, according to the film, might have stopped WWII in its tracks. Interesting drama with bits of history mixed in. Netflix

We are still on the edge.

The old saying is "When you shoot at the king, you must kill him." The von Stauffenberg plot was perhaps the best planned assassination attempt on Hitler in July 1944, defeated by the random kicking of the bomb behind the stout table leg as the generals all gathered around to see Hitler's grand plan (already doomed) for winning WWII. There are many ways to "win" against a prospective tyrant.
