Documentary about the early life of Adolf Hitler. During the First World War, Hitler served under the Bavarian Army in the 16th Bavarian Reserve Infantry Regiment. When the war broke out in 1914 Hitler was 25 and enlisted to fight for his country. Some accounts say that he became a valiant front line soldier who, on several occasions, proved his courage and loyalty; others say that he was a fraud and fought on the front line just once. This documentary examines all the evidence and attempts to reveal, once and for all, the truth behind Hitler's early years.
