According to the book German officiers were planning (summer 1938) a coup against Hitler in September 1938. The coup is organised by Canaris, General Beck, General Halder, State-secretary Von Weiszacker (is he family of the former German Bundespresident?), diplomat Goerdeler and Colonel Oster. To get support from foreign countries Beck informed the British government, there was even a conversation between Churchill and someone close to Canaris. The book is suggesting that Bernard's brother Aschwinn was involved in this coup, he and Bernard visited King George in the summer of 1938. Tried Aschwinn to get support for the coup from the British during this visit?
According to the book these plans were revealed in Neurenberg (by general Halder?) and are also in the book Gesprache mit Halder from Friedrich Lenz.

I was not aware of these plans for a coup. I found already some info in this old topic: http://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic. ... =coup+1938
Anyone more info about this possible link between Aschwinn (and Bernard?) and the coup?
