Jonathan Martin & Philip Nugus - Hitler's Bodyguard (2008)

Hitler’s Bodyguard is an explosive 13-part series from the makers of the acclaimed Churchill’s Bodyguard.Now for the first time thanks to previously never before seen SS records and images, the series provides a unique insight into the men that guard Hitler and explores one of the most enduring and unanswered uestions surviving from World War II – why, in 25 years, did no-one manage to kill Adolf Hitler?

Causing the deaths of 50million people, Adolph Hitler became one of the 20th century’s most iconic hate figures.Despised by those he persecuted, and even by some of his own commanders, Hitler’s life was constantly in dangeras he spread his tyranny throughout Europe. As he developed from shock politician to supreme leader of Nazi
Germany, he collected a long list of enemies along the way. Protecting Hitler was one of the world’s toughest jobs. During his time in power he survived over 40 attempts
on his life thanks to his fearless bodyguards.

In the 1920s, Hitler recruited street-fighting bullies to guard party meetings. They would soon become known as the SA. As Hitler's career evolved, the SA grew and their rival SS was created and competed for the powerful position of guarding Hitler.

The rivalry between the SA and the SS heats up as Hitler's power grows. Hermann Goering and Ernst Roehm square off in their attempts to get closer to their rising leader. Hitler's near fatal revolt and subsequent arrest serve to promote his ambition.

The series, narrated by Robert Powell, looks in greater detail at these plots, from Hitler’s early political career where he knew he was a marked man to the infamous Stauffenberg plot. Hitler’s Bodyguard also reveals why Churchill and Roosevelt did nothing to directly harm him or try to assassinate him.
