"The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich" exposes the darkest chapter in history, from Adolf Hitler's rise to power as a Nazi demagogue to his ultimate fatal mistakes. Researchers spent decades uncovering shocking footage of war, carnage and genocide and examined government documents and interviews with Hitler's closest associates to discover how one man led his nation and the world into hell.

The best single documentry on the third reich ever made!
William Shire really out did himself by putting together all the footage he acquired to make this film. It gives you the feeling of actually being shot at and the awful feeling of being stared at and being spied on by the Gestapo. To this day it gives me the chills and makes me look around the block and who is behind me. This would be almost funny if it had not really happened. And anyone that tries to tell you it didn't happen well this will change their minds if they have any. I find the historical value of this movie right up there with the best.
