Extraudinary British subterfuge.
20 May 2016 | by forest-15529See all my reviews

This must be the best documentary I have ever seen. I was utterly gobsmacked.

The British Secret Service then knows as MI19, use unprecedented and unknown technology to spy on unwitting German soldiers and more importantly some Generals.

They wire several manor houses with microphones with even the surrounding grounds with high quality microphones. They take the Generals to an exclusive London restaurant.

They learn that despite what most people thought about the atrocities of the concentration camps was the SS, they learn that regular soldiers were equally complicit. They also get proof of the development of the V2 rocket. Heretofore only rumors.

Even if WWII doesn't interest you, this is a must see.
