Colour Of War

The History Channel – Saturday 5 July, 8.30pm

For 12 years one man’s overpowering personality dominated the German nation. He led his people from economic ruin to European conquest and to the brink of creating a New World Order. In his wake, he brought a reign of terror that caused the death of millions. This program will tell the story of the rise and fall of a man who, as the Nazi Fuhrer, devastated the lives of countless numbers of people around the world and brought death and suffering to millions. Drawing from two recently discovered captured German colour film collections which comprise over 10 hours of previously unseen colour footage and woven with eyewitness testimony, Colour of War: Adolf Hitler tells this astonishing and disturbing story like never before.
