I believe they did it to solidify their hold, control and use of the British for their own agenda and purposes, using Britains unfailing refusal to acknowledge that they lost America years ago. It was the same German line controlling Britain that lost us from the British Empire. Their goal now is to reclaim all their colonies, including the USA.
Today, Prince Charles is acknowledging his ancestry is from the line of Duke Dracula from Transylvania which is Romania today and previously part of Khazaria. Remember, they migrated into eastern Europe and married into existing royalty which resulted in the Black Nobility. That is how they became minor royalty sufficient to marry major royalty.
Now why would Britain save Hitler from a German Army Coup? Is that why Obama has purged our military and before him, it was Cheney that purged the first batch out of the Pentagon. Where are these men now and why don't we ask them why they are gone? Me thinks its because of the almost coup that happened to Hitler and they did not want to risk it here this time around.
If Britain had not interfered, WW II would have had a different ending. Hitler was put in by the bankers, but betrayed them down the road, in order to save Germany. Is that a fear this batch of bankers has? That someone in power would betray them with military behind them and save America?
British Saved Hitler from German Army Coup in 1938 -
(Admiral Wilhelm Canaris. Is this hand gesture the explanation of German generals' docility?)
The German General Staff was ready
to overthrow Hitler in Sept. 1938
All the British had to do was take a firm stand
on Czechoslovakia. Instead the British encouraged
"In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way." FDR
"A panel of psychiatrists was even prepared, under the chairmanship of the eminent professor Dr. Karl Bonhoeffer, who would certify the Fuhrer as insane, so that he could be immured in a lunatic asylum....
'By the beginning of September,' [Chief of Staff, Gen. Franz] Halder would write, 'we had taken taken steps to immunize Germany from this madman.'" (156)
by Henry Makow Ph.D
In May 1938, when Hitler announced his intention to invade Czechoslovakia, the German General Staff were alarmed. They were afraid world war would destroy Germany. They decided to place Hitler in a mental asylum.
All they needed was confirmation from England that it would assist Czechoslovakia. The British dithered. Instead of taking a stand, they sabotaged Germany's resistance to the Nazi plague.
Ludwig Beck, the Chief of the German General Staff observed: "Through yielding to Hitler, the British government will lose its two main allies here.
the General Staff and the German people." (VN: thats ok, Britain is run by Rothschild, so it makes perfect sense. He wanted Jews to be killed so he could get Palestine that he needed in order to take over the entire globe, and we proved that on here in several different blogs, that it was Rothschild zionists that set up the Jews whom Hitler was going to release under certain conditions and the zionists refused to meet those conditions and that caused what is now called the holocaust or the appearance of a holocaust. I do not know so I can't say)
The simplest and best opportunity to avoid calamity was lost. The Illuminati wanted world war to increase their power and wealth, and to destroy Germany in advance of their satanist One World Government. The Illuminati were not going to allow their creation, Adolf Hitler, to be overthrown.
"You must understand that this war is not against Hitler or National Socialism," Churchill is quoted as saying, "but against the strength of the German people, which is to be smashed once and for all, regardless whether it is in the hands of Hitler or a Jesuit priest." (Emrys Hughes, Winston Churchill, His Career in War and Peace p. 145)
Admiral Wilhelm Canaris, Chief of the Abwehr (Military Intelligence) was part of the conspiracy to overthrow Hitler which is described in Richard Bassett's Hitler's Spy Chief: The Wilhelm Canaris Betrayal (2012). pp.150-160.
Canaris and General Beck sent Ewald Von Kleist to London August 21 where he met Sir Robert Vansittart, the chief diplomatic adviser to the cabinet. Kleist told him that Germany planned to invade Czechoslovakia Sept. 30, 1938. If England drew a line in the sand, the generals had plans to make an end of the Nazi regime. These plans were well advanced. But all Kleist could secure was a general statement from Winston Churchill, who was not yet in the cabinet.
Nevertheless, the plan proceeded. Richard Bassett writes: "Several generals commanding troops were prepared to enter the conspiracy. By 14 Sept. General Von Witzleben, commander of the Berlin area, had made arrangements with Gen. Franz Halder (New Chief of Staff) and others to arrest Hitler as he returned from from Berchtesgaden to the capital.
Count Helldorf, the Berlin Police Chief, would arrest the other party leaders while General Hoeppner, in command of the Third Panzer Division, would march on Berlin at the signal from Witzleben. Count Brockdorff-Ahlefeld, in command of the Potsdam garrison, would support Witzleben while Count Fritz von der Schulenburg, son of the German Crown Prince's former chief of staff, would secure the government sector of Berlin...." (156)
(Left, Chamberlain endorses Nazi aggression.)
However, the entire conspiracy was predicated on England stating it would intervene in the event of a German attack on Czechoslovakia. But instead of taking a stand, Chamberlain announced Sept. 14 he would fly to Berchtesgarden to treat with Hitler. The optics suggested capitulation. In those days, statesmen did not fly to meet each other. Chamberlain had never flown before.
Bassett: "Both Chamberain's message to Hitler, noting 'I shall be ready to travel as of tomorrow morning' and Hitler's immediate acceptance, imply a mutual understanding that the stakes on a personal plane were high."
When Canaris heard the news at dinner, he lost his appetite. "What! He...visit that man?" Canaris exclaimed. Many prominent Germans were horrified. The coup was postponed indefinitely. How could they overthrow Hitler when he was effortlessly getting his way?
Chamberlain's decision to visit Hitler spared Hitler and his gang from immediate arrest. Publisher David Astor wrote that the failure to act on the Kleist mission was "the saddest missed opportunity of the whole hellish experience leading up to World War Two." (Balliol Record, 1982)
CANARIS (AND HUMANITY) BETRAYED
Richard Bassett writes: "Canaris ... had opened his hand to the British and they had ... betrayed... his entire stratagem. ...It is not improbable that in arranging Chamberlain's visit so rapidly and secretly [British ambassador to Berlin Neville] Henderson, left had obliquely impressed on the Fuhrer his knowledge of Hitler's vulnerability and the need to act swiftly...Did forces in Britain in subtle way want a war with Germany? Did they fear a restoration of the monarchy and the generals who would prove no less menacing to the balance of power?" (162)
Canaris is often described as a "wily old fox" but apparently he didn't have the big picture. The Illuminati Jewish banking power based in London wanted a world conflagration. Hitler was their arm's-length agent.
Regardless of what the British did, why didn't Canaris and the generals act independently? Why didn't they simply overthrow Hitler? That would have defused world tensions and saved 60 million lives. Canaris and the generals may have been tied to the Illuminati themselves. They may have been Freemasons and looked to London for leadership. Apparently, there was a branch of German Freemasonry that was not shut down by Hitler. These people may have been betrayed by their fellow Masons in England.
Canaris had ties with Illuminati bankers and arms merchants like Basil Zaharoff. On one level, the Abwehr served the Nazi cause admirably. But on another level, Canaris worked hard to ensure an Allied victory. He supplied advanced warnings of every Nazi attack. He censored intelligence reports both of Allied weaknesses, and strengths like compromised communications and agents (ULTRA and Double Cross System.) He schooled Spain's Franco on how to remain neutral.
Hitler was undoubtedly aware that Canaris was a traitor but Hitler was a traitor himself. When SD Chief Reinhard Heydrich was about to arrest Canaris, the British had him assassinated. Heydrich was the only high-level Nazi official ever assassinated. Czech agents injured him, and according to Heydrich's wife, Hitler's doctors finished him off.
Freemasonry may control the world's intelligence intelligence services. But these services, and Freemasonry in general, function on a need-to-know basis. Their members don't know the real agenda, Luciferian world tyranny, (or they couldn't be used.) Thus, Wilhelm Canaris, who was hung by the Gestapo in 1945, and other well-meaning Germans were sacrificed.
Mankind is in the baneful grasp of the illuminati central bankers. The Second World War is usually depicted as a struggle to save "civilization" from Nazi barbarism. In fact, the war advanced an eventual tyranny much more subtle, but not totally different.

First Comment from Dan:
"Canaris and the generals may have been tied to the Illuminati themselves....Apparently, there was a branch of German Freemasonry that was not shut down by Hitler. These people may have been betrayed by their fellow Masons in England."
It's documented that Canaris sent MI6 his notes from a general staff briefing with Hitler before the invasion of Poland in 1939. He was a mole already as early as 1938. He even secretly met with his British intelligence contact during official trips to neutral Spain. Once, a visit to a convent was the cover. Inside he was debriefed by the chief of MI6 in Spain.
How could such a high profile figure in the Werhmacht establishment carry on like that, literally face to face with Heydrich and Himmler without discovery? Perhaps his confidence came from connection with an even more entrenched and formidable pre-existing intelligence network. High Masonry, that of nobility and the elite - not the visible lodges of the proles that Hitler broke up in 1934.
As for how he got away with it so long, Himmler knew Canaris was a double agent for a long time, but he kept him alive in order to use him as a liaison in Himmler's secret surrender negotiations with MI6/OSS. It's of interest to note that Himmler also had secret back channels to British intelligence. 
I noticed the hand sign Canaris posed in his portrait photograph. It sure resembles the Masonic sign of 'sacrifice'.
The Neck A Sign of Sacrifice
"A number of dictionaries of symbols state that the hand placed on the neck signifies sacrifice. Now sacrifice can have at least two meanings--one, the continuing threat of the penalties to be applied to punish those adepts and initiates who so impertinently reveal the secrets of the Order; and two, the willingness of the individual performing the sign to sacrifice himself for the good of the Order, or for the good of the cause or Great Work of the Illuminati."
Canaris was connected to another intelligence organization: the Chabad Lubavitcher organization.. "One notable person he is said to have assisted was the then Lubavitcher Rebbe in Warsaw, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchok Schneersohn." 
In 2009 the Lubavitchers promoted recognition of Canaris as a 'Righteous Gentile' by the Yad VaShem Holocaust memorial. Yad Vashem rejected of the request, staing: first, that Canaris did not risk his life to save Jews; second that Canaris was chief a Nazi intelligence organization that helped condemn civilians to SS and Gestapo executioners. Dr. Ephraim Zuroff, director of the Wiesenthal Center in Israel called Chabad's request "problematic." 
Yosef Kaminetzky's reply sums up Chabad's sentiment, "He saved the rebbe,why shouldn't he be recognized as a righteous gentile?"
Here I have to mention that soon as Rabbi Yosef Yitzchok Schneersohn arrived in New York in 1940,he solicited large sums of money from American Jews supposedly to help fund efforts to save Jews from Europe. Instead, he spent it to set up his new Yeshiva and Lubivicher headquarters in Brooklyn. He didn't lift a finger to save the Yeshiva students he abandoned in Warsaw. Neither did Admiral Canaris.
I don't want to digress, I'm just adding for detail that when the Rebbe's elder cousin Levi Yitzchak Schneersohn's papers were captured by the Stalinist NKVD in Ukraine in 1939, extensive correspondence with non other than Leon Trotsky was found.
"The rabbi led an underground community of "exiles, deportees, convicts, and refugees" and died in Almaty in 1944."  I mention only to point up that Trotsky by his own admission in his autobiography "MY LIFE" was a high ranking Mason along with Lenin.
In conclusion I think "the case is open". The full story of Canaris' willingness to sacrifice himself remains an open question.

In response to Himmler's attempts to open peace overtures with the Allies in 1945 through Count Bernadotte, Churchill enquired if they should negotiate with Himmler and bump him off later. 'Quite entitled to do so', said Churchill. This suggestion met with some support from the British Home Office."
