Friedrich Fromm was aware that some of his subordinates were planning an assassination attempt against Adolf Hitler, he remained quiet and agreed to have a part in it if he became a top official of the new government after the mutiny. Against Hitler's orders to take the conspirators alive, he had them executed immediately by firing squad to cover up potential allegations that he himself was involved. He was executed on 12 March 1945 for failing to act against the 20 July plot.
