Some were suspicious of his motives, accusing him of acting more out of self-interest, and less out of benevolent concern for the plight of the Jews and other victims of Nazi war crimes. Instead, such an undertaking should only be pursued by a coalition, ideally composed of wise members of the ruling class.
For sure, both Stauffenberg and Tresckow were preoccupied with how their move against Hitler corresponded with their religious convictions. This literature review justifies that horror is derived from the fear and guilt within our psychological minds.
The legacy of those involved in such plots remains the subject of much controversy.
The coup failed in part because they delayed implementing the plan until official confirmation of Hitler's death could be received. When Tresckow became aware of the massacre of thousands of Jews at Borisovon the eastern front, a final straw had dropped. The talents of Paul Haggis and the exciting casting of Don Cheadle, Sandra Bullock, Matt Dillon, et al, attracted me to this movie and I am thankful that I ignored what the critics have said.
