As a Historian I will add this to my personal collection of WWII Documentaries. I was impressed by the use of home movies shot by families that lived in Germany during the rise of the Nazi Party leading to WWII. The series effectively tied the experiences of the German citizenry in with how Hitler first came to power and then in leading the nation to war. The impact of Hitler's rise to power and how the Nazi Party ran the government was evolutionary rather than revolutionary for most Germans. We know how the Nazis marginalized the Jews before finally removing them from society. They along with the other "undesirables" were the focus of propaganda efforts to convince the German people that it was important to remove these people from society. The series shows how popular Hitler became as he led Germany out of the Great Depression and brought previously unattainable luxuries to the working class. Hitler and the Nazis restored German pride after the humiliation of the Versailles Treaty and other sanctions by the Allies after WWI. This series shows how happy Germans were as Hitler made one foreign policy triumph after another gaining new territory for the Reich up until the attack on Poland finally triggered WWII. Hitler was careful to keep domestic goods in production so the German people wouldn't have to sacrifice for the war effort which ironically led to Germany being the last nation to go to a full-time war economy. Hitler was fearful that the German people were too soft to bear the full measure of a war economy. So at the start of the war the German people were mostly unaffected by the war except for those men who went off to fight.Read more ›

After watching the 2 part series on the History Channel I was so impressed that I've been searching the internet to purchase this (of course, it's here but pre-release). Well, the presentation of this docu was very unique and something I haven't seen in WWII docu's before. It's difficult for me to explain but between the narritive and the images, it was a refreshing new view on something that I thought was covered many times. I learned much more than I expected- especially because this was offered as a view from the German people. I highly recommend this title. Did you know Hitler was Time's Person of the Year in 1938??

I am watching the documentary on the History Channel as I write this, and I am just blown away by what I am watching!! My uncle and I are both historians of WWII, having traveled throughout Germany, Dachau Concentration Camp and the Ukraine, and I can say this is one of the best, if not THE best, compilations I have ever seen of actual footage shot by Germans at the time the events took place. My uncle and I have shelves of videos, DVDs, books, etc. delving in the rise of the Nazis, WWII and all related that would challenge the Smithsonian, and I thought I had seen everything there was to see... until now. I would love to know where The History Channel located all this footage as I am in awe of the level of footage that I have never-before seen. I would also like to emphasize the excellent narration by the History Channel. It is just so extremely well done I don't know what more I can say other than "Thank you" History Channel for reinventing the Nazi Documentary... this is some of the best, most informative footage compiled to date. What really sets it apart is the way in which the German people themselves narrate the footage via diary entries, letters, and so on. It is shocking to say the least. I can only wish that more of our schools would use this to inculcate our children in the ways of evil and subterfuge that arise during times of national difficulty and how easily people can be led astray by a provider of false hope. Amazing to see what people were willing to tolerate, and the level of personal freedom that was surrendered to the government, in exchange for the false hope of being taken care of by their government. This movie is a lesson for all nations and peoples who think they can get something for nothing...Read more ›

I just saw the History Channel's broadcast of Third Reich: Rise & Fall and was very impressed. How they told this story, which has been told so many times in so many ways, using amazing film footage (some of it home movies), and truly interesting narration, blew me away.
I highly recommend buying and viewing this documentary to others. I'm definitely pre-ordering this gem.

As a history teacher I am faced with the arduous task of finding historical movies and documentaries that will keep the attention of 130 students. With much of today's youth being exposed to war movies and violent video games at an early age, many of them feel like they have "seen it all". By seen it all, I mean movies like Saving Private Ryan and Band of Brothers, etc. Not to knock any of those movies (as they are excellent) but they do not create the same atmosphere that the "Third Reich" does. I showed this entire documentary to an Honors U.S. History class and the entire class was floored.

As mentioned before, many of these kids think war is "no big deal" but after seeing this film, their opinions quickly changed and it actually resulted in an extremely thoughtful and creative discussion. Whether you are a teacher, a historian, or just looking for something good to watch, "Third Reich" will keep you at the edge of your seat. The homemade footage, the pictures, and the historical narrative are nothing short of amazing. Highly recommended.
