Mission: Kill Hitler

This brand-new, one-off documentary tells the story of a little known attempt to assassinate Adolf Hitler, which remained secret until the end of the 1990s. The mission, which could well have succeeded, was to target Hitler during his daily morning walk at the Berghof, his Bavarian residence, by parachuting two soldiers into the area. Based on the British Secret Services' declassified documents, using archives and fictionalised reconstructions, this film recounts the detailed plan that should have led to the murder of Hitler and explains why it failed.
