Synopsis by Rose of Sharon Winter
This video is part 16 in the 26-volume World at War series that chronicles the history of World War II. The programs, narrated by Laurence Olivier, originally aired on television in 1974. This volume examines life inside Germany during the war years from 1940-1944. It shows how the German people were lulled into thinking that their war was won, after early victories in Europe. As the tide began to turn, Hitler's support eroded, and discontent grew.
