Why We Fight (World War 2 Frank Capra Documentaries) 1943

The Nazi Strike was the second of Col. Frank Capra’s government-ordained “Why We Fight” series. This hard-hitting documentary artfully assembles existing stock footage to trace the rise of Adolf Hitler and his thirst for world conquest. Virtually wresting the German government from more moderate politicos, Hitler installs a dictatorship. Having subjugated the Jewish citizens in his own country, Der Fuhrer moves onto the Rhineland and Austria, and demands the annexation of Czechoslovakia. Despite his assurances of “peace in our time,” Hitler marches into Poland. World War II is the undesirable but inevitable end result. Like all the “Why We Fight” films, The Nazi Strike was designed to clarify the meaning and importance of the war effort to the average GI.
