The Plot to Kill FDR
About the Book
In 1933, shortly after assuming the office of president, Franklin D. Roosevelt became convinced that, “Adolf Hitler would have to be got rid of if there was to be any assured peace in Europe.” Upon being informed of Roosevelt’s veiled threat, on July 17, 1934 Hitler met with Reichsfuhrer SS Heinrich Himmler. Together they hatched a bold plot to assassinate the American president. The audacious venture would come to an end on the rain-swept deck of German Navy submarine U-575 off the coast of North Carolina shortly after midnight on November 13, 1935. This is the story of the fearless Nazi assassin charged with leading this secret mission, and the brave German-American woman who stood in his way.
