  • The story of the attempts to kill Hitler has been told before... but [Moorhouse's] survey can claim originality thanks to the inclusion of plots hatched by non-Germans

    David Cesarani, Literary Review
  • Roger Moorhouse's enthralling book accounts for a whole gallimaufry of foiled assassination attempts on the Fuhrer, which ranged from the sublime near miss to ridiculous schemes worthy of Mel Brooks

    Roger Lewis, Sunday Express
  • A gripping account, which is thoroughly researched, but wears its scholarship lightly enough to be read like a good political thriller

    Times Literary Supplement
  • Highly readable... Moorhouse tells his story briskly and sensibly

    Richard Overy, Sunday Telegraph
  • In Killing Hitler, Roger Moorhouse has found a new approach to the story of the Third Reich which is both original and authentic

    Norman Davies
