Join Emmy award winning film maker Bob Carruthers on a journey into the world of Adolf Hitler. The environmental factors which shaped Hitler are explored and assessed in this unique film which retraces the footsteps of Hitler from his first boyhood experiences through the years of struggle in Vienna, his Great War adventures, the bungled Beer Hall Putsch, his triumph over democracy and his final defeat in the ruins of Berlin. Nothing is missed in this brilliant film which produces an incisive insight to the main factors which influenced Hitler - from his violent father to the mesmeric effect of the music of Richard Wagner. Many of the surviving Third Reich sites today are revisited including Hitler's birth place, his family homes, the beer halls, the monuments to folly which were erected in his name. Set to a stunning soundtrack of music by Richard Wagner, the film incorporates historic interviews with Hitler's sister Paula and other Third Reich figures. This is indispensible viewing for anyone who seeks fresh insight into the man and his world.
