Propaganda but enjoyable.
6 January 2019 | by SwedishPsychoSee all my reviews

If you want an unbiased historical account of Hitler's rise to power, and WWII this documentary isn't for you. What this documentary does have is excellent black and white footage that is rarely seen in modern documentaries. In high quality aswell. All in all this is documentary well worth the watch if you can ignore its biased nature.
