Placing 30 cameras and a staff of 120 at her disposal, Hitler and Goebbels staged the most spectacular propaganda rally the world had ever seen. It was a gigantic extravaganza involving the efforts of hundreds of thousands of people. This two hour expression of fanatical devotion to the fuehrer principle is a unique historical record which perhaps more than any other document of the time exposes the psychology of the Third Reich.
