Far from lasting the thousand years claimed by Adolf Hitler, the Third Reich proved to be a short-lived, if thoroughly and overwhelmingly evil, blot on human history. This sweeping, two-part documentary from the History Channel surveys both the rise and fall of the Nazi empire, exploring how Hitler's governing philosophy managed to seduce millions of people and how those same people witnessed the destruction of the fascist dream. 180 min. total on two discs. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital stereo.
