Storyline

Determined researchers scoured the world for color film shot during World War II and unearthed shots of Nazi rallies honoring Adolf Hitler, combat footage from across Europe and the Pacific, and scenes of liberated concentration-camp prisoners. The crisp color images bring vivid life to historical events typically conveyed in the distancing shades of black and white. Written by Ulf Kjell Gür

Fantastic and Musy Be Seen
6 February 2006 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

This was a three part series that aired on the History Channel of footage, all of it in color, that was culled from various film archives and home movie collections. While some of the color footage of Hitler has been seen before (the footage from Hitler's home movies) the rest of the footage has not been seen. It is amazing to see this footage in bright color. While the series only three parts, and not enough time to go through the entire War in depth, there apparently are hundreds of more hours of footage left on the cutting room floor, and one can only hope that there will be future shows.

This documentary is available on DVD and VHS.
