Georg Elser’s Bomb Plot To Kill Hitler (Volume 2, Number 4)

The information for this podcast came primarily from two books:

Bombing Hitler, by Helmut Haasis

Bombing Hitler: The Story of the Man Who Almost Assassinated the Führer

The Lone Assassin, by Helmut Ortner

Lone Assassin: The Epic True Story of the Man Who Almost Killed Hitler

Georg Elser was interrogated many times by the Nazi government.  These interrogations were preserved which is why much of what he did is public knowledge and discussed in these books in detail.
