Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Countess Nina von Stauffenberg, wife of Colonel Count Claus von Stauffenberg has died aged 92. Talk about someone in the foreground of history! Pity it all went horribly wrong. It's amazing that she survived the revenge of Hitler.

    Countess von Stauffenberg

    This may belong in Military and Related Obituaries thread as the wife of the second most famous German soldier (after Rommel-not Hitler).

    Edited to add: also posted in Military and Related Obituaries.
  2. How will the Germans mark her passing? It's not quite the end of a dynasty as the Von Stauffenbergs are still going strong in spite of Himmler's best efforts.

    I'd like to see her passing marked in some sort of special way though.
