Quotes

Narrator: [Voiceover narration given at the start of each episode] Adolf Hitler caused the deaths of fifty million people. An entire nation followed him to ruin. He was hated by those he persecuted, and even by some of his own commanders. Yet in twenty-five years no one managed to kill him. Winston Churchill had very few bodyguards, whilst Hitler had thousands - he needed them: during his travels across Europe, there were over 40 attempts on his life. Now, with access to captured original S.S. records, ...

Excellent miniseries: it's like a flash review of WW2 history
25 September 2011 | by See all my reviews

This is an enthralling, informative - and sometimes painful to watch - history of Hitler's precarious hold on power. The series makes clear that lots of people hated Hitler, and truly wanted to bump him off. Many people - both inside Germany as well as outside - put together various plots and schemes to do exactly that, but nearly every effort ended in abysmal failure. Only one or two of the plots really came even close. Some of the plots were downright inspired lunacy, like the proposal offered to New Zealand test pilot A.E. Clouston that he fly a British long-range plane all the way from England to Berlin, bomb Hitler as the fuhrer sat in a parade viewing stand, then high-tail it back to Britain - all on one tank of gas! Clouston thoughtfully and respectfully declined, but the series really makes you ponder the "what if?" aspects of such attempts on Hitler's life.

Anyway, this is a great series for people who want a refresher course on the dark days of Nazi power consolidation and other events leading up to WWII. In addition to footage from after WWII started, the series contains fantastic amounts of footage from the early to late 1930's; also many clips are shown in well-preserved color film. Plus, the series puts things in a global perspective, and also reveals things that make you scratch your head and say, "Wow, I never knew that before!"

I DVR'd the whole series off of the Military Channel. I believe you can go to their website and order the series on DVD. Highly recommended for war and history buffs.
