An excellent if not brief explanation of Hitlers confidants.
This is a very good portrait of some of the top officials of Hitler's inner circle in Nazi Germany. My only real complaint is how brief everyone is explained. There is so much more to all of these characters that a 43 minute show doesn't really do them or us the audience justice. I would recommend this to those that aren't really familiar to these men, but not to those that do. They really only cover the basics of these men, and to a certain extent it is interesting, but not for history buffs. Even though this says that all these men were non-repentant which is probably true, I don't think it was completely true for at least one of these men. Albert Speer started out as Hitler's Architect, then moved on to the Minister of Armorments. However he was the only man that apologized for any wrong doing during the trials at Nuremberg, which says a little something about his character. I would recommend anyone interested in learning more about any of these characters to read up on them as they were all fascinating in their own sometimes disturbing ways. In particular read "Inside the 3rd Reich" by Albert Speer. It is a fascinating look at the some of the inner workings of the NAZI's and how Hitler slowly became more and more the monster. Speer was first and foremost his friend for many years, then seeing as the NAZI's were going to lose the war, Speer becoming the Minister of Armorments and then only having a very business-like relationship. Do watch these excellent if short biographies of the most deprived/sick/racist people the world has ever seen. If you take away anything from these, It is to see what no one should want to become. It is also self-evident that absolute power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
