Synopsis

Hitler rooted heartily for the British in his favorite movie, Lives of a Bengal Lancer, wherein India fell under the power of the dominating Englishmen. When he found himself on the opposite side of Britain, which he admired, was he fighting the wrong war? The Nazis: Warning From History -- Wrong War provides some background to answer the question, and reveals that the Nazis tried early to persuade the English to join their cause. The program also explores the non-aggression agreement with Russia, and the militarization of Germany. ~ Alice Day, Rovi

The Nazis: Warning From History - Helped Into Power analyzes these attitudes and presents reasons for their ascent, including Hitler's charisma, propaganda, the Wall St. crash, and terms of the 1919 Treaty of Versailles. ~ Alice Day, Rovi

Many believe that his tyrannical rule forced the Germans into submission, but these programs reveal otherwise. ~ Alice Day, Rovi

Hitler enjoyed an awesome power over his subordinates, and was able to manipulate them to keep the Germans in the war. The program compares the Germans to the Italians, who did not remain loyal to their leader to the end, and provides possible reasons for the difference. ~ Alice Day, Rovi
