Plot Summary

Vienna, 1944: The young army captain Carl Szokoll gets involved with Count Stauffenberg's conspiracy to assassinate Hitler. Szokoll's task is to assume command of the Replacement Army to get Vienna under his control when Hitler is dead. When the assassination attempt fails, Stauffenberg is executed, but Szokoll remains undiscovered and is even promoted to Major. Vienna 1945: The Soviet army is moving closer to Vienna, and it is only a matter of days before they reach the city. Hitler's orders are to completely destroy the city before the Soviets reach it. Szokoll and a few fellow conspirators feverishly try to avert the destruction of the city. Using some of the old orders left over from the 1944 plot, they intend to get part of the Wehrmacht troops in Vienna under their control and arrange a peaceful surrender of the city to the Soviets. Private Käs is sent to negotiate with the Soviets, when a traitor almost thwarts the plan... This semi-documentary is based on the actual events of July 1944 through June 1945. Written by H. Prillinger
