Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Over sixty years after the end of World War II, recently declassified documents and contemporary experiments offer insight into a multitude of attempts at assassinating one of the most feared and despised dictators of the 20th Century. As the Nazi war machine spread terror and death across Europe, there were at least forty-two documented plots to kill Adolf Hitler and bring his regime crumbling to the ground. But who were the men that offered to lay their own lives on the line for the sake of killing one of history's most despised tyrants, and just how did they plan on accomplishing such a formidable feat? In this documentary, the filmmakers at National Geographic offer detailed insight into the forty-two assassination plots that may have altered the course of history had they actually succeeded.
