Most of what we know about World War II comes from monochromatic images and pictures. But this documentary brings something different: it's a fascinating collage of colored images from that period, filmed in 8mm and 16mm. All the footage was gathered from private collectors, soldiers, tourists, state institutions, even footage shot by Hitler's private pilot and there's also images captured by Eva Braun, Hitler's companion.

Das Dritte Reich In Farbe seems more realistic than other World-War 2 documentaries you have seen because it`s in color instead of black and white which is common, you will get heavier impressions on how it was back then when Hitler ruled Germany.
