A look at the underground tunnel system that the Germans built during World War II to house their armament factories.

This fascinating documentary by Michael Kloft (The Goebbels Experiment) travels underground to examine the subterranean factories that the Nazis built during World War II.

Kloft provides ample detail about the mechanics behind the tunnel systems as well as the conditions that laborers endured to build them. Reich Underground also has some rare footage of Adolf Hitler and propaganda mastermind Joseph Goebbels.

Shelf Talk: Educators, libraries and museums are the most obvious target for this title. For those who have seen The Counterfeiters, this year's Oscar winner for Best Foreign Language Film, Reich Underground will be a suitable companion piece, as they both explore a part of the Nazi regime that hasn't received much coverage.
