Television At Its Very Finest
1 May 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Superb documentary and the definitive examination of Adolf Hitler's relationship with an adoring German public. Powerful imagery is utilized as original footage and photographs illustrate Hitler's early life and rise to power. Haunting in its portrait of evil and a people surrendering the soul of a nation completely to it, Professor Christopher Andrew presents his indictment with not only pictorial evidence but the testimony of individuals complicit in the horror of Nazism. This is an excellent example of television's ability to educate and enlighten as this fascinating production fulfills the highest potential of the medium. Simply a brilliant presentation and an important cautionary tale regarding the insidious nature of evil and how a single little man can perpetrate one of the greatest crimes against humanity through the blind obedience of the masses to a rabid, bloodthirsty nationalism.
