There are many reasons and theories as to why the operation failed. The main theory is that one of the 20 officers in the room moved the bomb that Stauffenberg placed next to Hitler further away and behind the leg of the table out of Hitler 's way. Many historians believe the leg of the table absorbed the blast and saved Hitler 's life. Another huge reason is that General Olbricht waited too long to give the reserve army in Berlin orders to arrest all SS and Gestapo personnel (Science ABC). The reason Olbricht waited so long was because he never got an official word that Hitler was dead, only from Stauffenberg.

Truman then authorized the use of the atomic bomb, which was made to save American troops because military advisers stated that around half a million soldiers lives were at risk if they were sent overseas (“The Bombings of Hiroshima” n.p.). Around one-hundred and forty thousand civilians died over time from the effects of the atomic bomb and almost seventy percent of the buildings were destroyed. Only five buildings didn’t need major repairs even though their buildings are more stable than ones in America for earthquakes regulations (Hersey 81). Just imagine what people were going through, some people were disintegrated, others lost limbs, and then after the bombing the distress wasn’t over, people then died of radiation sickness.

In the morning they had prepared for the assault. Torresola was a very skilled gunman, and had taught Collazo how to load and handle a gun.
“The most identifying trait of humanity is our ability to be inhumane.” This is a quote from Dean Koontz, an American author.

But just as humans share the ability to be inhumane, other characteristics of humanity can play a role in their lives as well.
