This TV drama 2-parter deals with the socalled 'Blomberg-Fritsch-Affair' of 1938 in Nazi Germany. As a result of intrigue by Reichsmarschall Hermann Goering the names of the two highest ranking generals, Werner von Blomberg (supreme commander of the Wehrmacht) and Werner von Fritsch (supreme commander of the German armee) got blackened by dubious witnesses. Werner von Blomberg had unknowingly married a former prostitute and Werner von Fritsch was falsely accused of homosexual activities. As a result both noblemen had to resign from their duties and gave way for Reichschancellor Adolf Hitler to take over total control of the German armee forces. Written by
