This episode of the History Channel’s Modern Marvels series focuses on the scientific feats and failures that were achieved by Nazi Germany.
Even before the Second World War, Germany was already considered to be one of the nations to have achieved great advancements in the field of science and technology. According to historians, the technology they possessed should have been a great aid for them to win the war. The German leaders at that time were far too selective with regards to the advances that they would allow. This in turn led to the wasted potential that their technology and knowledge would have been able to achieve.
Hi-Tech Hitler follows experts and historians as they look into these technologies one by one. They try to examine them further and see why these knowledge worked for other countries, post-World War Two.
