 Review | The Oster Conspiracy of 1938 by Terry Parssinen   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
The officers, especially Oster, noted with alarm that the führer's policies and actions didn't just seem to inch the country toward war, they positively shoved Germany's military machine into conflict -- along the way, sparing no expense to the lives and reputations of the military officers themselves.
Oster always held firm to the belief that Hitler should be killed.
A fellow officer told Oster, "A Hitler alive is stronger than all of our divisions." So, Oster plotted a "conspiracy within the conspiracy." When Hitler is arrested, the raiders are to begin shooting and in the resulting confusion of gunfire, the führer is to be "accidentally" killed.

Oster's epiphany had come years earlier, Parssinen notes: It was not until Hitler's massacre of hundreds of SA [storm troopers] leaders on June 30, 1934, "the Night of the Long Knives," when two senior army generals were killed, that Oster became convinced that the regime was evil and must be overthrown.
