Aha...quite a handsome chap he was too. I had always the impression that he wore an eye patch, possibly given by the movies?

He also had a glass eye, which he didn't like but used sometimes. I think however this photo was taken before he was wounded.

Here, was a brave man. Of course I'm referring to "Colonel Claus Schenk Graf von Stauffenberg", and "NOT" A.H.

The painting above was painted by Heinrich Knirr in 1937, it still exists and is now in the Imperial war museum in London.
See also this link for more information on Knirrs work.

Speaking of Stauufenberg, does anyone know when the film is due to be released?

Who knows? It keeps getting put off. It seems that the film itself may be a bigger bomb than the one von Stauffenberg planted under ol' Adolf's table. :P

Here ya go...for the release date.

FYI: The Germans did not like "Tom Cat" because of his CULT (scientology) ties in the US!

I'm siding with the Germans on this one!
