I've listenened to a couple hundred books and I've never had a book with 15 narrators. I was excited about that prospect but for some unknown reason the various actors entered into the narration on no particular schedule. Sometime the main narrator does a voice, the next time the actual actor who was suppose to do the voice. They just kept changing who did it. If you're going to have 15 actors narrating, have the SAME person do each voice ALL THE TIME. Super confusing and it frankly really killed the book for me.
The title has nothing to do with the book. Almost no inside perspective on the assasination attempt. If I wanted to read a biography about a german soldier I'd have looked for a book entitled, "What it was like to be a Nazi soldier and become disillusioned with our cause". When the big moment comes and the assasination attempt is made, the author's full description went something like, "the next day we heard the assasination was unsuccessful". No description or commentary on the nuances from the "inside" perspective the title promised. Zippo. Next time, I'll be better about reading others reviews as they were quite on target and I didn't notice.
