11 The prominent role of members of the aristocracy, specifically in the military opposition, is a further indication of the fact that the conservative-nationalist resistance was drawn primarily from social strata which resisted wholesale Nazification and provided channels of communication, as it were, outside the political sphere. Professional motives played an important role in recruitment; this was true both for the diplomats and the military, and in this connection it is worth recalling that the 9th Infantry Regiment was the recruitment source of choice.

Hitler’s gain in popularity as a result of the rapid defeat of France made his removal appear a virtually hopeless undertaking. The entire war in the west and the consequent continuous changes in the military and diplomatic situation confronted the conservative-nationalist opposition with a novel situation, as indeed did the opening of the eastern front with the invasion of Russia in 1941. The policy of preventing war changed to one of stemming its spread or ending it altogether. Senior military officers, who as late as 1939 had sympathized with the opposition group around Beck, Hassell, Popitz and Goerdeler, now withdrew from any active collaboration.

This was the apparent result of the Nazi policy of Gleichschaltung (‘co-ordination’) and the general depoliticising of the population through Nazi propaganda.

This coincided with the fact that the political personalities of the Weimar republic – though not those of the presidential cabinets of its final period – were largely absent from the conservativenationalist resistance.
