  • HUNTING HITLER'S HENCHMEN

DESCRIPTION

Their bravery has inspired countless films but, until now, the real story of some of Britain's greatest war heroes has remained in the shadows.

Hunting Hitler's Henchmen is a film about some of Britain's bravest military. With ex-special forces soldiers as guides, venture beyond the movies to meet the snatch squads: commandos sent behind enemy lines to take out Hitler's most-feared generals.

They slipped into Nazi-led Libya to kill the infamous Desert Fox, General Erwin Rommel, and succeeded in snatching General Heinrich Kreipe from under the noses of 15,000 soldiers.

Risking their lives to disrupt the Nazi war machine, these are the heroes who inspired Hollywood: incredible men sent to eliminate Hitler's top brass.

Don't miss the UK premiere on Sunday 2 October at 9pm.
