An astounding documentary that provides the story of how Hitler and the Nazis came to power, and how it mismanaged trying to run the country. While the mobilization of the war machine did give jobs to the huge unemployed work force, the actual war in Europe was won by Germany by 1941.

What was made so clear are several points. First, the populous broadly supported the incredible rise of the Nazi party. Second, Jews were made the scapegoats by the populous--as the cause behind Germany's many problems. Third, the communists were viewed as an enemy of Germany. Rather than focusing on what the Nazis did, this documentary shows how the German people drove the rise of the Nazis.

If you are looking for a first-rate history documentary that not only features plenty of excellent archival footage, but is also one of the most incisive and informative (as it clearly retells the true story of Nazi-rule in war-torn Germany), then, believe me, this is definitely the one presentation to see.

Impressively directed by Laurence Rees - This 6-episode program is a very serious "Warning From History" - Indeed - Cautioning us all that if a horrific event like the "Holocaust" did happen once, then, to be sure, it could, most certainly, happen again.

And, of course - As we all know - The chief orchestrator behind all of the endless oppression and atrocity that prevailed throughout WW2 was the biggest and vilest villain of them all - Adolf Hitler, an utterly despicable, low-life worm whose sole objective was to rule the world "his way".

.... A Warning From History (!?)

When it comes to being honestly and thoroughly educated about the reality of the "Holocaust" - I'd say - Forget about watching Spielberg's "Schindler's List", and, instead, focus your full attention on this riveting and, yes, chilling 1997 documentary from the BBC, titled (what else?) "The Nazis".

Through interviews with Holocaust survivors, witnesses, participants, and even close associates of Hitler's, along with plenty of excellent vintage, newsreel footage - This 6-chapter, 4-hour documentary will undoubtedly give you a much better understanding as to why something as horrific as the Holocaust actually happened.

I mean, it's certainly mind-boggling to believe that so many millions of intelligent people were, in fact, completely duped and seduced by the likes of Adolf Hitler, a quirky, carpet-chewing, tantrum-throwing, evil-eyed misfit/scoundrel if there ever was one.

.... Was it all done "For The Love Of Thy Fuhrer" (??) - See for yourself..... (*Watch video-trailer*)

is this book any good

It was good. It was exactly what you'd expect from the BBC. What makes this particularly compelling is that it's focus it predominantly set on the Eastern front. Most of the other works I've seen focus on the Western Front, touching briefly on Stalingrad and the plight of the Jews. It's time well spent.
