@Scott Humphreys Just because someone is a insane psychopath doesn't mean he is non compos mentis so not responsible for one's actions. Insane psychopaths can also be pragmatic. Incidentally, in this context the term "pragmatic" is the correct term and "rational" is not. Because rational is a completely wrong term in this context, because rational is derived from concerning reason, determined by reason, reasonable and meaningful. But nothing the Germans did could be defined that way. Insane extremist racism and insane extremist greed of the Nazi nation can very well be viewed as a form of some kind of pragmatism. Because acting pragmatically is placed above reason and the truth and validity of ideas and theories are measured solely according to their success. Not to forget that the "success" of the Nazi nation here is the exterminationof tens of millions of people for racist reasons and the robbery of the land of these people. That is then the opposite of reason and rational.

@Scott Humphreys It is totally wrong what you mean! Nothing can be compared to the Germans and their " Führer" Adolf Hitler! Incidentally, the more appropriate attribute is total insane coupled with megalomania! But madness is not really bad for a Nazination and their "Führer" that murdered tens of millions of people.

I can remember when “The history channel” first came to be in the early 90’s, I was hooked. So many war stories from WWII. Slowly it turned to reality garbage. I stopped watching. I found Mark Felton’s channel a few days ago. Hello real history. God bless you Mark Felton. You’ve answered my prayers.

So I think this video is completely superfluous! Because what happened to Hitler's henchman Goebbels in the last few days before the German defeat is completely irrelevant. Only the failure of Hitler and his henchmen was relevant, as was the failure of the entire German nation in this war. Only the defeat was relevant and how it came to this defeat while Hitler was still alive.

I was born and lived many years in Berlin before moving to the United States. I remember my Grandfather telling me how he met Mr. Goebbels before the War after a speech he gave at the Sportpalast Arena around 1938. Unfortunately, he was impressed by Goebbel's charisma and devotion to the Fatherland. My memories are those playing in the rubble and having many childhood friends who lost their fathers during the War. My family lost everything after the war due to Russian confiscation. It is difficult for Germans like me to watch those old newsreels and all the destruction and atrocities.

The day before Hitler committed suicide, the central communications center and army headquarters at Zossen was captured by the soviets thus cutting off the fuhrerbunker from the outside world. With Soviet artillery and bombs exploding over head, Goebbels reported this to Adolph and after a few moments of contemplation of what this meant, Goebbels reaffirmed his commitment to the fuhrer. Suddenly Goebbels snapped to attention and gave the Hitler salute and shouted " Adolph, i believe in you and the final victory!"... Goebbels then lowered his arm and went limp and continued, "but the thousand year Reich thing isn't going too good right now".

Hitler escaped via a secret exit tunnel which led to a makeshift airstrip. There was also a tunnel to Templehoff airport. He flew to Denmark then spain before getting a sub to Argentina where he lived by a lake in Bariloche until 1955, the probably went to Chile.

The Red Army artillery, by some accounts that I've read, was overwhelming in the approach to Berlin. One article I read said that the Soviets had artillery pieces placed 50 meters apart that stretched along an 11 mile, or nearly 18 km, front . . . that would amount to around 360 pieces raining down artillery shells on the German lines. While the Western Allies had its air corps for bombing, the Red Army did it with artillery.

@David S. OK! The wording "...used his underpants as a flag" is really funny. Thumbs up for that! Thanks for that! I will use this on occasion when I want to mock the Nazi nation. Incidentally, one should understand my comment in such a way that one should not waste one's time looking at videos that provide detailed information about Hitler's successors. Because actually you can describe the relevant facts in a few sentences. Anything more is a waste of time. One can use the time to find out more about more important topics.

Would Mark consider making some Q&A videos? I'd be interested to know if the tankhunter concept still exists, or if advances in modern tanks means that a single tank can fulfill both roles; and if tanks like the Jagtpanzer could have replaced tanks in general, or if they were subject to mechanical limitations or limited effectiveness against softer targets.

Last year I was visiting my sister in law in Berlin. I ate in an Indian restaurant and then walked a few blocks towards a Shopping Mall. Shockingly, I came across the remnants of the Fuhrerbunker located in a rather nondescript parking lot. I know Mark has covered this but it was eerie being near the bunker in person. As always, thanks Mark for such a thorough history presentation.

@sea nettles Here in Canada it's the same. Indians (Punjabis) arriving by the thousands. They have no allegiance to Canada other than the money and benefits. In some major urban areas, Indians have replaced other ethnicities and they make up the bulk of low skilled workers. The current Liberal party allows this for future votes. By the way I'm a non-white immigrant myself, but I embrace Canadian culture and am thankful for what the country has provided me. I've given back in several ways like joining the Canadian military among many other things.

@James Brennan Your comment is nonsense! Because your comment completely contradicts historical facts. How could the Germans have thought that the war would end with the Soviet raid on Poland when the Germans, in their megalomania, had plans to attack France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Holland in the west and later in the east to raid the Soviet Union for to conquer so-called living space for the Germans. Because that was the German ideology. Destruction of the nations in Eastern Europe to create living space for the Germans. So it is out of the question that Hitler could have thought that the war would end with the Soviet raid on Poland.

@Pete It was the British who declared war, and Churchill was not Prime Minister at the time of the declaration of war. But the British and French declaration of war 1939 against Germany served only for saving face. The British and the French did not intend to keep to the contractual commitment and to attack massively in the west. They wanted to sacrifice Poland for peace with the Germans! This was the continuation of British and French appeasement stupid politics of the 30s! The inaction of the French and British was the message to Germany: Be satisfied with Poland. Do not attack us behind the Maginot Line. We do not attack Germany either! So most British bomber activity was the dropping of propaganda leaflets. That was a betrayal nothing else!

A very interesting story and film clips about what actually happened in the dying days of WWII. I knew that Hitler killed his new wife and himself, and that their remains were set fire to, and that Goebbels wife had poisoned their children, but didn't know that a 'friend' had made sure they were dead, then shot his wife and then himself. This has expanded the real facts, so now I am a bit wiser about these actions than I was some 20 minutes before watching this video....:) So thank your Dr. Mark, and look forward to your next episode of facts and mostly unknown stories....:)

1:58 German friend of mine 25 years ago was showing me around Hamburg and pointed out a building near the alster [the little one] in which his grandmother had lived and which had had an UXB in the roof until a crew came to toss it in the river, at which point apparently it exploded. Supposedly, many years later, she had in a tone of mock wistfulness cited this speech and told her grandson, "Goebbels asked us, 'do you want the Total War'? We said yes. It was nice..." This stands for my whole life as the epitome of dry wit and subtle sarcasm.

The consensus was that Doenitz was appointed 'Fuhrer' - this is essentially untrue, as he was appointed 'President', which in Germany is effectively Veep, as Goebells was appointed Chancellor (US equivalent: President). I have never known this. It is also up to the Chancellor to declare himself Fuhrer, I gather. So Doenitz was not the heir: Goebells was! He lacked the courage and the common sense to claim his prize. I was totally in the dark about this.

what overlooked events??? is the same crap you see on every documental of BBC, Deutsche Welle, Nat Geo, etc. about Göbbels or ''the last days of Berlin/nazism/ III Reich, etc.

I’ve watched dozens of Mark’s videos and countless other documentaries and I still can’t over the utter madness of the Germans that fought until the very end. In our relatively peaceful modern world it is truly hard for me to comprehend

Hitler sent nearly two dozen peace offers to the British during 1940-41. If the British were unwilling to accept a negotiated peace when they were losing, why would they have accepted a negotiated peace when they were winning? Besides, the main reason Hitler sent peace terms to the British back then was because he wanted to devote all of Germany's resources toward Operation Barbarossa. He figured (probably correctly, as it turned out) that Germany stood the best chance of defeating the Soviets if they could concentrate their entire war machine in a fast war effort against Russia in 1941. But after that failed, offering anybody peace terms was probably the last thing on his mind.

I found the video very interesting. However the story you tell at the end about the KGB cremating and then dumping Hitler's remains into a river is different from what I've read and seen about Hitler's skull in Moscow in storage. Can you delve more into this history?

Probably not the best strategy to try and surrender when the enemy is within spitting distance of you. That probably gave the Soviets a good laugh. Yeah we've been fighting you for 4 long years, I think we can manage another 4 hours

The vivid details of the last few hours of Hitler and his supposed immediate successors was really amazing ; the.conspiratory theorist still tries to cast doubts on the details of Hitler and his officers deaths on the last days of the Reich; making one curious of the sources of these informations especially the ones that were not well documented elsewhere

Regarding Goebbels' family, he had announced on the radio that they would all stay with him in Berlin 'until the end'. A clear example to his beloved country men & women; as everyone knew what that meant. What a guy, eh?

Himmler never served at the front in WWI. He enlisted in the very last of the war. Himmler was always made fun of by Hitler and Goering because he never actually saw combat, unlike both of them. It also was explained in Mark's video about Himmler's uniform that none of his decorations were for combat.

A lot of the worst people in the 20th century were of humble roots. You can never really tell what people will do with power until they have it. The answer is buried so deep within them that they might not even know it themselves.

Mark Felton should be running the history channel! The history channel in the US, glorifies history with just dumb positivity. The history channel never shows the ugly truth because broadcasters don't like to air graphic and ugly content. Your channel is what the history channel should always be.

If you look closely you'll notice that in Hitler's last appearance in the gardens of the Reich Chancellery in March '45 the absence of the 2 massive, bronze "Striding Horses" statues he'd commissioned by Sculpturer Josef Thorak. There is a Soldier standing in the location where the statues had formerly been positioned. This confirmed they had been relocated to safety and were not destroyed during the Allies bombing of Berlin, as was assumed for around 70 years after the War. This observation by astute 'nazi-looted art' Detective Arthur Brand prompted the search and discovery of the massive statues, intact and still hidden in Germany, almost 70 years after the fall of Berlin. This was a monumental discovery which rocked the World in 2015. A fantastic story.
