    Comments about The Rise And Fall Of The Third Reich:

    I saw this last in 1964 and never forgot it. I have no idea why it was not released until now, but am immensely grateful. The best documentary of the 3rd Reich ever made.

        Every high school student should learn the history in this video. To forget / never learn it is to be condemned to repeat it and take part in its atrocities.

              A memorable adaptation of William L. Shirer's classic book. It is especially good on the rise of Nazism and its embrace by the German population--a lesson for our times.

                I am a university history/political science major and amateur historian. This is a great overall look at the German and the rise of "medieval barbarism in the mid twentieth century."

                    This is a three part documentary that aired on ABC in 1968 with Richard Basehart narrating. Even though I have watched many of these over the years, I still managed to learn something watching this one. David Wolper's company produced this, and his presence always guarantees a certain level of quality. One amusing side note: the music was composed by Lalo Schifrin, and he includes some cues from Mission Impossible, so it was a little strange watching the first one until I saw his name in the credits and realized what was going on. The transfer looked just fine on my 42" tv, upscaled via my Blu-ray player.

                      this is the perfect documentary about an evil man and the misguided people who worked for him.how he rose from Austria streets to leader of Germany is both amazing and frightening.this is the full length 154 minute version that originally aired back in 1968.

                        Based on production date this is a somewhat dated look at a time in world history that needs to be remembered. It is historically relevant and worthwhile to watch and have in one's library of WW2 era docus.
