S3 E1: Blitzkrieg

In the first years of World War Two, Hitler’s Germany crushes its enemies in a series of lightning offensives.

Extraordinary ruins scattered across Europe tell the story of a revolution in tactics and weapons which almost gives Hitler the chance to create his Thousand Year Reich.
