Storyline

London, Spring 1941. Columns of Wehrmacht soldiers make their way along the Mall, swastikas hang from Buckingham Palace and Junkers scream low overhead-a potent symbol of Nazi victory. The Germans have conquered the capital. Churchill and his government have gone into hiding... It's a chilling picture: What would the Nazis have done if they had conquered Britain? Filmed in England and using Allied and German documents, blueprints, and archive film, this two-part documentary-covering both occupation and resistance-answers one of the most intriguing questions in history. And, for the first time ever, Britain's plans for defense are unveiled as cameras explore Churchill's secret wartime citadel and archeologists unearth top-secret bunkers and tunnels.

A terrifyingly convincing picture of Britain's fate under Nazi rule
16 November 2004 | by gavsivanSee all my reviews

This documentary is actually the first part of a (two-part) miniseries entitled "Hitler's Britain."

Part One gives a terrifyingly convincing picture of what might well have occurred if the Nazis had launched a successful invasion of Great Britain in 1940. It suggests that eminent appeasers, such as Neville Chamberlain and Lord Halifax, would have collaborated with Hitler and that "enemies of the Reich" (Socialists, Freemasons, and of course Jews) would have been rounded up and shot or sent to the European death camps.

Part Two visualizes the collapse of British military resistance within a few months of the invasion, the activating of Churchill's civilian underground fighters, and their ultimate destruction. That would have left Hitler free to perfect his long-range missiles and launch them in waves against the Soviet Union and the United States.

Having lived through the World War 2 Blitz (in Liverpool), and knowing how the Nazis treated many millions of so-called "Untermenschen," I believe that these two documentaries provide a clear idea of what the British people's fate would have been under Nazi occupation.
