Hitler's Bodyguard

Show Summary

Hitler's Bodyguard is The Military Channel's documentary series that looks at those who protected Adolf Hitler. Adolf Hitler was responsible for ordering the deaths of fifty million people, and leading an entire nation to ruin. His meteoric rise took him from a minor politician to supreme leader of Nazi Germany in just 12 years, and though he was supported by his party, he was hated by the victims of his persecution. The show examines how Hitler survived when over 40 attempts were mad on his life during his tumultuous reign, and who stopped those would-be killers. The series uses computer-generated graphics, classified documents and photos and film to show how the Nazi leader was protected by some of the most fearsome secret police and military forces in the world. We see inside Hitler's strongholds like the Berghof, the Wolf's Lair, and the Berlin Bunker, as well as his security measures when traveling. We also see in detail how the tyrant manipulated his bodyguards, having them swear loyalty, then cultivating rivalries between his secret services. Join The Military Channel as they take a fascinating look into the protection of one of the 20th century's most evil tyrants on Hitler's Bodyguard.moreless
