History will judge this the definitive video WW2 documentary
I remember watching this in the 1970s - then I have just recently borrowed a couple of episodes from our public library.
With a nearly 30 year hiatus, I have come to another conclusion. Most of the principals interviewed in this series - some at the center of power like Traudl Junge (Hitler's Secretary),Karl Doenitz (head of Germany's navy) Anthony Eden (UK) - are long gone but their first hand accounts will live on.From Generals and Admirals to Sergeants, Russian civilians, concentration camp survivors, all are on record here.
I can remember the Lord Mountbatten interview (killed in the 1970s)
