Next Episode of Secrets of the Third Reich is
In "Secrets of the Third Reich" a celebrated Nazi general plots Hitler's assassination. A sunken U-boat mysteriously vanishes. The Fuhrer's own physician nearly kills him with dubious treatments. These are just a few of the Secrets of the Third Reich, a four-part series that takes you behind the scenes, under the ocean, and into the minds of some of World War II's most prominent figures. Join us as we uncover the little-known stories that played a large role in determining the fate of the war...and those who fought in it.
The mountains of southern Germany hold one of the 'Secrets of the Third Reich,' and perhaps millions in lost Nazi treasure. It was here, at the tail end of World War II, that Heinrich Himmler planned an Alpine Fortress for a hardcore group of Hitler's elite army. The plan never happened, but what about the hundreds of millions of dollars in government and private funds that made their way to the Alps from Berlin? We examine the myth of "Alpenfestung," which has fascinated historians and treasure hunters alike for many decades.
Mystery and intrigue continue to swirl around Hitler's right-hand man, Rudolf Hess, more than a quarter of a century after his death. Why did he abandon the Reich at the height of its power? How immersed was he into alternative medicine and was his death truly a suicide? We reexamine the life of the Deputy Fuhrer and follow his delusional and dangerous "mission of humanity" that helped turn the tide of World War II.
