While his uncle, Graf Nikolaus von Üxküll, approached him to join the resistance movement after the Polish campaign in 1939, it was Stauffenberg's individual conscience and his religious convictions that urged him to act.
Stauffenberg along with fellow officers General Olbricht, Leutnant von Haeften and Oberst Albrecht Mertz von Quirnheim were later shot that night by firing squad in the courtyard of the Bendler-Block (War Ministry).
Today, because of the vital role he played in the July Plot, Claus von Stauffenberg is celebrated as a national hero and symbol of the German resistance to the Nazi regime (known as the Widerstand).

In reward for his distinguished service, Gneisenau in 1814 - along with Yorck, KKeist and Bülow - was elevated to count, while at the same time Blücher became Prince of Wahlstatt.In 1815, once more chief of Blücher's staff, Gneisenau played a very conspicuous part in the Waterloo campaign.
It is known that Gneisenau had the deepest distrust in the British commander, who, he considered, had left the Prussians in the lurch at Ligny, and that up to the hour of victory he had grave doubts as to whether he ought not o fall back on the Rhine.
Blücher burst into Hardinge's room at Wavre, saying ''Gneisenau has given way, and we are to march at once to your chief''.On the field of Waterloo, however, Gneisenau was quick o realise the magnitude of the victory, and he carried out the pursuit with a relentless vigour which has few parallels in history.
