Synopsis

Part of the documentary series looking at the history of the resistance movements in Occupied Europe during the Second World War.

After several abortive assassination attempts against Hitler, cuminating in the July 20th 1944 bombing, the resistance in Germany was all but wiped out. Features rare archive footage as well as dramatised reconstructions and profiles of Hitler and his generals.
