World Battleground - 1000 years of war in 5 minutes ..
Operation Spark sometimes translated as "Operation Flash" was the code name for the planned assassination of Adolf Hitler by the anti-Nazi conspiracy of German army officers and political conservatives, known as the Schwarze Kapelle ("black band") during World War II..Hitler flew to Werwolf, his "field headquarters" near Vinnitsa in Ukraine, on 19 February 1943, staying until 13 March.. He decided that before returning to Germany, he would also visit AGC headquarters near Smolensk that same day..He would meet with Kluge, and dine in the officers' mess before departing, an unwitting officer handed Hitler a parcel thinking it contained a gift of liquor when it actually contained a bomb..All went according to plan and Hitler's plane took off from Smolensk to Rastenburg with the parcel aboard, but it failed to explode due to a faulty detonator..
