How did Hitler go from teenage loner to German national hero and Fuhrer? More4 presents the definitive guide to the world's most evil dictator, who was responsible for the total destruction of Europe and the horrific genocide of millions of people. This second episode investigates Hitler's astonishing rise from election defeat in 1928 to becoming Germany's Messiah just five years later. Experts analyse his speech-making skills and pioneering political spin, and explore the mind of a man who ruthlessly executes his closest comrade in a night of brutal mass murder. They explore how Hitler survives the scandalous death of his niece, shot with his own pistol, zero in on Hitler's first meeting with Eva Braun, and attempt to square the private Hitler, who is paranoid about his own security, with the celluloid god of the ultimate propaganda movie, Triumph of the Will.
