Adolf Hitler is perhaps the most feared and despised man of the 20th century. Not surprisingly, there were over 40 documented attempts on Hitler’s life. Assassins ranged from simple craftsmen to high-ranking soldiers in the Führer’s own military. When the smoke cleared, how did one of history’s most vile figures manage to survive so many attempted assassinations?
Suicide bombers. Infiltrating snipers. Female film stars. Aerial raids. 42 Ways to Kill Hitler reveals the ingenious methods used to target the Nazi leader. Aided by cutting-edge CGI, security experts explain why the plots failed; and using modern weapon and explosive experiments, determine what slight change could have made the missions successful. Historians theorize how history would have been altered had just one of the killers eliminated Hitler. 42 Ways to Kill Hitler detonates little-known historical facts into an explosive program sure to captivate viewers as it poses the great question: What If...?
Everyone knows why Hitler had to die. 42 Ways to Kill Hitler shows how multiple attempts to eliminate history's greatest villain failed -- while the world had to wait for Hitler to take his own life.
