A peak inside the Nazi machine and its leader's life
Part of the series that also contained Japan's War in Color. This is a series of home movies and other color film showing the period of 1933 to the end of the war in color. The narration is mostly made up of quotes from diaries and speeches from the time.
Another very good documentary on WW2 that shows snapshots of the war in ways that have rarely been seen before. As with the Japan film this is not a detailed account of Hitler or a war but a rather its a peak inside of the private life of the head of the Nazis. For lack of a better term and no pun intended the film nicely adds color to what you know about Hitler and Germany.Definitely worth a look.
