Academy Award-nominated director Michael Verhoeven unearths the long-buried truth about Nazi Germany in this documentary exploring the Wehrmacht Exhibition - a controversial display consisting of personal letters, photographs, and film footage that implicate common foot soldiers in some of the most horrific atrocities ever committed against mankind. When most folks think of World War II, names like Hitler, Himmler, and Eichmann offer a comforting means of confining evil to a relative few: But what of the countless soldiers who carried out their diabolical plans - aren't they just as much to blame for the horrors that we read about in our history books? Despite the fact that the sons and grandsons of these soldiers have refuted the damning evidence that vilifies their forefathers, the fact remains that the Nazi leaders couldn't have cemented their terrifying stronghold over Europe without some serious backup, and as Verhoeven and his crew travel to the killing fields of the Eastern Front while speaking with historians, experts, soldiers, and eyewitnesses, the viewer bears witness to an insecure nation's desperate attempts to reconcile its proud history and dark legacy. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide
