Summary, etc.:
Prelude to War: began as a training video for U.S. Troops compares the "free" world to the "slave" world--the dictatorships of Germany, Italy, and Japan. Used widely as a propaganda piece, the film endures as a study of how governments survive to justify wars to those who fight them.
The Nazi strike: Capra's documentary depicts Germany's diplomatic and military betrayals leading up to the 1939 invasion of Poland and the events that finally led France and Britain to declare war against Hitler's regime.
The Secret life of Hitler: details Hitler's rise and fall. Includes footage of Hitler's final relocation from the idyllic Berghof to the Berlin compound. Features interviews with Hitler's sister and fellow inmates imprisoned with him during World War I. Footage of Eva Braun, her sister, and other women at the Berghof.
The Nuremberg Trials: Svilov's 1946 documentary was the first film produced about the last major event of World War II. Trial proceedings include top Nazi officials, soldiers and civilians being brought to trial for war crimes. The firsthand account provides for a source perspective on these events.
