Volume 19 of the documentary series looks at two of the elite units in Nazi Germany, using archive footage and eyewitness accounts. Part one of the documentary looks at the Luftwaffe's fighter aces, highly trained young men who flew against the pilots of Britain, Russia and the United States. Part two examines the role of the Hitler Youth, the youth organisation that by the end of the war had recruited over 18 million people.
