Anyone named Horst in the 20 July plot? Plus Hermann Aldinger

Post by Sufyan Hadi » 18 Sep 2020 16:42

I was wondering if there was civilian aid in the 20 July plot in France, especially in the inner circle? I specifically hear a Horst mentioned as a Nazi Party aide to Carl-Heinrich von Stülpnagel, the commander in Paris. Anything that proves his existence and backstory?

A Hermann Aldinger is mentioned in several sources (one I remember is here) as Rommel's aide at the time of the plot: http://aldingers.org/contributions/capt ... death.html

...yet he was a Luftwaffe soldier from the Condor Legion who is also mentioned as Army in film adaptations I have perused. Another anachronism, several conversations I've explored also suggest that a Hellmuth Lang was Rommel's adjutant at the time of the air bombing on his staff car.

Again, requesting clarification on both these issues.
