Never before released, this fascinating British Pathe cinema newsreel documentary made in 1940 records the rise of the Nazis in Germany and their invasions of the Sudetenland, Austria, Czechoslovakia and Poland before the outbreak of the war.

The documentary also includes coverage of the early events of the first year of WWII including the sinking of the Graf Spee at the Battle of the River Plate in 1939 and other Royal Navy actions. Accompanying the main feature are no less than eight rare wartime Pathe newsreel shorts, including features on the invasion of Poland, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Belgium and France. Finally, there is an in-depth look at the plot to assassinate Hitler by a group of his own officers.
