Summary "Over a tumultuous twelve years Adolf Hitler went from being a minor rabble-rousing politician, to supreme leader of Nazi Germany. He was hated by those he persecuted, and even by some of his own commanders - yet in 25 years no one managed to kill him. 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. 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." -- website
