Storyline

In this installment of the Why We Fight propaganda film series, we see the events of Nazi Germany's diplomatic and military acts of international aggression. One by one, we learn of the Nazi's consistently underhanded and relenting violation of every promise of peace and exploitation of their foes's attempts of appeasement until the invasion of Poland September of 1939 which led to Britain and France finally taking an armed stand against Hitler.

Quotes

Narrator: In the Middle Ages, a plague of slavery descended on the world. Out of the wilds of Mongolia came a mighty army of fierce horsemen, led by Genghis Khan. Burning, looting, pillaging, the barbarian horde swept across Asia and Eastern Europe. Genghis Khan conquered most of the world of the thirteenth century. Adolf Hitler was determined to outdo him, and conquer all the world of the twentieth.

That's Colonel Frank Capra, not film director there!
23 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Colonel Frank Capra of the United States Army is better known for his classic film, "It's a Wonderful Life!," but here is an American fighting for his country with the use of film. He compiled the actual German archival footage with Nazi newsreel propaganda to fool the German public and the world about the Nazis intentions. This documentary is told by narration over the stock and film footage. Please be aware that these films' quality may not be stellar or perfect. After all, time has taken a toll on the documentaries themselves. Without even talking about the Holocaust, Capra captures the Nazis Third Reich's true hidden agenda with their own footage. The propaganda footage fooled many into believing them. We all know the lies that was perpetrated among the world back then. Capra shows in this short documentary how the Nazis were really fooling the world.
