The Fall of Berlin
60th Anniversary Collection ~ Submission & Partition
This compelling documentary tracks the events that lead to the conclusion of the war in Europe. As the Americans create a bridgehead on the River Elbe, the Luftwaffe makes a last desperate attempt to counter the fury of the Allies bombing of Berlin. Whilst Hitler visits the Eastern Front, the Hitler Youth builds barricades around the doomed city. But all is lost, as far as the Third Reich is concerned. The Russian Army launches a devastating attack along the Oder River, only 40 miles from Berlin. The German surrender becomes inevitable, and the hapless city is divided up amongst the victors.
