The Wehrmacht

Image 1 / 7

Adolf Hitler's armed forces, known as Die Wehrmacht, thundered through Europe during the 2nd World War from 1939 to 1945 and brought needless death and destruction to the continent. What was it like to serve in this army that conducted one of the bloodiest wars in history; an army that occupied half of Europe and yet ended up suffering total defeat? This five-part series provides long-awaited answers based on the latest historical and comprehensive investigative research. Each episode sheds new light on Die Wehrmacht's complex bonds of loyalty, conscience and honour. This is a thought-provoking story of an army's evolution from defence troops to military force to exterminating power.
