How the trenches shaped his world… and ours.
“The soldier has a boundless affection for the ground on which he has shed his blood.” Adolf Hitler, August 1942
During the Great War, Adolf Hitler served in the ranks of the 16th Bavarian Reserve Infantry Regiment from 1914 to 1918, and was awarded the Iron Cross. In later years, under the masterful control of Doctor Goebbels, Hitler was successfully portrayed by the Nazis as a valiant front line soldier who, for four long years, had fought many hard battles in the front-line of the trenches.
The World has long accepted the Nazi version, and Hitler is often referred to as a Corporal, but a series of clues remain which pointed to an alternative version of the truth. There were hints which pointed to the fact that, far from being a brave front line fighter, Private Hitler was actually a fraud, a draft dodger and rear area malingerer who in four years of war had only ever fought in one action.
Now, almost a century later, as a result of a series of painstaking investigations, the Emmy Award winning producers of this ground breaking documentary have resolved the century long controversy over Hitler’s service in the Great War. This powerful documentary film finally reveals the full unvarnished truth concerning Adolf Hitler’s actions in the Great War.
