- The Unholy War, Defending Berlin
Like old soldiers everywhere, they are fading away, but these German veterans of World War Two have an incredible and sometimes shocking story to tell. This is a unique opportunity to see and hear the last testimonies of Hitler's armies.
BLITZKRIEG - Unleashing the Nightmare
During the early months of World War Two, the world was introduced to a new and terrifying military concept - the tactic of Blitzkrieg. Country after country fell as a result of this new "lightning war", until the seemingly unstoppable armies of the Third Reich stood on the coastline of Northern France.
THE LUFTWAFFE - Messengers of Death
The Luftwaffe was at the cutting edge of Blitzkrieg and it was instrumental in bringing the war to the great cities of Europe, most notably during the "Blitz" on London during 1940. As the war progressed, however, the pilots were forced to fly more in defence of their country, often in inferior and outdated aircraft..
THE WAFFEN SS - The Alibi for History
The Waffen SS - the SS army - was not always looked upon favorably by the German army. With some 900,000 non-Germans in its ranks, it was the performance of crack divisions such as the SS Panzer Leibstandarte and the Hitler Jugund that persuaded the Fuhrer to use them as an elite force.
U-BOATS - Iron Coffins
Britain finally won the war against the deadly German U-Boats that lurked in the freezing waters of the Atlantic ocean. But what was life really like in the cramped and claustrophobic conditions aboard the vessels that became known as Iron Coffins?
RUSSIA -The Unholy War
The Russian Front saw some of the most bitter and bloody fighting of World War Two. Places such as Stalingrad and Leningrad are now synonymous with the human suffering of that terrible conflict, which threw the people and armies of Russia against the invading German forces in the teeth of a savage winter.
DEFENDING BERLIN - The Last Battles
In April 1945, the Red Army stood at the gates of Berlin; inside the shattered city, only the pathetic remnants of the Home Guard, the Hitler youth and the SS Wehrmacht stood against them. Berlin and its population lay at the mercy of the Russians, who exacted a terrible revenge.
