I heard recently that not only did far more of the German
high command agree with this beforehand than would admit
to it afterwards, but that it nearly succeeded. A getaway
train was prepared and waiting for Stalin at Moscow station,
and if he had turned up and escaped on it, Russia would have
fallen. Connoisseurs of pivotal moments might like to add this
one to their collection.

Anyone know anything more about it?
