    How did he manage not to get caught? All branches of the TR assisted in the hunt for would be assassins. Countless fell from this purge. Even high ranking figures such as Rommel. If he would have participated then others knew of his plans also. Im stumped as to how he could have never been figured out... Perhaps others may have an explanation? Thanks
