The man who almost killed Hitler

History buffs, WWII afficianados, and true crime readers will all appreciate The Lone Assassin: The Epic True Story of the Man Who Almost Killed Hitler, a 1993 German-language book available for the first time in English translation.  Georg Elsner was just an ordinary man living in 1939 Munich until he resolved to assassinate Adolf Hitler.  Elsner's homemade bomb went off successfully, killing 8 people but not his intended target.  This book looks at the lead-up to one of the great "what-if" moments in history - check it out at Mastics-Moriches-Shirley Community Library!
