LISTEN: Ensnared in the Wolf's Lair

By Mornings on Maine Street

During the summer of 1944, a secretive network of German officers and civilians banded together for Operation Valkyrie in order to make a last attempt to assassinate Adolf Hitler.  Their plot was meant to take place at the Wolf's Lair, the dictator's headquarters in East Prussia where he spent nearly half of World War II. It failed. 
An enraged Hitler demanded revenge.
"I've come on orders from Berlin to fetch three children." - Gestapo agent, August 24, 1944
Ann Bausum visited Maine Street to take us inside the story of what happened after the failed operation. Her book, "Ensnared in the Wolf's Lair", was written for young readers but resonates with adults as well.
