Valkyrie (2008)

In Nazi Germany during World War II, as the tide turned in favor of the Allies, a cadre of senior German officers and politicians desperately plotted to topple the Nazi regime before the nation was crushed in a nearly inevitable defeat. To this end, Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg, an Army officer convinced he must save Germany from Adolf Hitler, is recruited to mastermind a real plan. To do so, he arranges for the internal emergency measure, Operation: Valkyrie, to be changed to enable his fellows to seize control of Berlin after the assassination of Der F├╝hrer. However, even as the plan is implemented, bad luck and human failings conspire to create a tragedy that would prolong the greater one gripping Europe.
