The recon material sat for decades, its unique view of important encounters unseen. Shot from aircraft high above the conflicts, it captures the intense action as Allied forces battled their enemies. Enriched with cutting-edge CGI graphics which create detailed contour maps of the battleground, THE LOST EVIDENCE sheds new light on some of WWII’s most important engagements.
Literally hundreds of thousands of lives could have been saved if Hitler had accepted the obvious: his war was over. Depleted in nearly every way, and fueled by little more than national pride and fear of retribution, the German Army was defeated long before the Russians arrived. Nevertheless, they allowed their capital to be flattened and their citizenry decimated with a suicidal attempt to hold Berlin at all costs.
THE LOST EVIDENCE reconstructs the deadly finale of WWII in Europe with a remarkably precise, never-before-seen perspective. Utilizing rare aerial photographs and the latest computer-graphics technology, every aspect of the massive assault - 9000 pieces of Soviet artillery and a million Russian soldiers against the vicious, entrenched remnants of the Third Reich - can be seen in exquisite detail.
No life was spared, no surrender considered, and the Third Reich collapsed only after weeks of the most intense warfare of WWII. Relive THE BATTLE OF BERLIN in this gripping episode of THE LOST EVIDENCE.
