[edit] Information

In the days and weeks after June 6, 1944 Allied soldiers pour into France via the beaches of Normandy, beginning the campaign for Berlin and opening the western front. Their goal was to free Europe from German occupation. But the operation was not easy - Hitler's troops decided to put up strong resistance - at any cost. After the surprise of the D-Day landings and the initial advances, Nazi forces fall back to dig in to keep an unrelenting grip on naval bases, citadels and fortresses of occupied Europe, planning to drive the Allies back into the North Atlantic and reassert German domination. Before the Allies stood impregnable cities and fortresses, the fight for each of these obstacles was exhausting and sometimes almost desperate. It will take eleven months of hard fighting and desperate battles to break the Nazi stranglehold to free the rest of Europe. D-Day was a battle, the Allies still need to win the War. The series "Hitler's Last Stand" tells of these bloody battles in which both sides put everything on one card. These are the stories of the hardest fights for victory, even for survival. Produced, Directed & Written by Ian Herring and Maija Leivo ; A Parallax Film Production in association with National Geographic

[edit] Nazi Fortress

Desperately needing men and supplies to feed the Allied advance after D-Day, the Allies target the deep water port of Brest, still in the hands of the German occupiers since 1940. During the month long siege, the US 116th Infantry Regiment storms a fort protected by minefields and defended by elite paratroopers. When flame-throwing tanks fail, they turn to an explosive solution to bring down the walls.

[edit] Forest of Death

Six months after D-Day, the war in Europe reaches a stalemate. As Allied forces close in on the German border, supply lines fail to keep up and fighting conditions deteriorate as winter sets in. US Rangers must capture Hill 400, a critical peak which permits observation of enemy activity for miles around, including a secret Nazi build up preparing for the infamous Battle of the Bulge.

[edit] Panzer Fury

Even after D-Day, the liberation of Europe was extremely difficult. Allied forces had planned to take the French city of Caen on D-Day, but more than a month later, German troops still cling stubbornly to the critical hub, bottling up 860,000 Allied soldiers on the Normandy beachhead. A tank unit there is particularly hard on the Allies. On July 8th, a Canadian regiment must capture the Abbaye d'Ardenne, which guards the city but is held by a notorious Panzer unit accused of horrific war crimes.

[edit] Enemy Allies

After Adolf Hitler’s suicide during the final days of World War Two, an American Tank Commander leads a motley mix of German and American soldiers determined to protect French VIP prisoners held in a castle in the Austrian alps from loyal Nazi troops. When their tank is struck and the Waffen SS forces attack, it is not clear they will be able to hold out.
