A GLOBAL APPROACH
Hitler's "Thousand Year Reich" lasted but 12 years, 4 months and 8 days and importantly, that'local events' were not viewed in isolation and, by reason of the fact that much of history and itsteaching nowadays is "dumbed down", the chronology, now here on disc for the benefit of futurehistorians, covers the whole period from Hitler's appointment, as Chancellor, in 1933, right up tothe time of the Nuremberg War Trials and executions in 1946.
DOORSTEP MYSTERIES
Despite the passing of the years and decades, there is an on-going fascination with stories of Germany’s U-Boats and there are still many mysteries to be solved about the final moments andresting place of some which were depth-charged and claimed to have been sunk as a result of theattacks.Four years, less four days, after the Campbeltown-based Rescue Tug "Englishman" went missing,the German submarine "U-482" too disappeared.Then, more than 50 years later, both wrecks, little more than a mile apart, were proved to belying on the west side of Kintyre, off Bellochantuy and the story of their discovery also told here.
LASTING LEGACIES
For future researchers and historians, here too will be found German glossaries, Hitler's speechdeclaring War on America and copies of both the German and the Japanese Surrender Documents.
