Taking hold of the reins of fate, two very different men stood on the stage of world history - "Der Fuhrer" and the "II Duce". They became the most photographed and filmed politicians of their time. Still today, both remain the subject of countless films and documentaries, but never before has their relationship been exposed and analysed with such insight.Would Hitler's rise to power have been possible without the influence of fascism in Italy and Mussolini's reign as a mainstream dictator? How would Mussolini's imperial ambitions have evolved without the diabolic involvement with his axis partner?The recent discovery of thousands of rolls of film in German and Italian archives reveal a deeper understanding in the callous relationship between these two heads of state. From their guarded beginnings as strangers and rivals, to becoming student and master and then equals, both men rose to power with a desire to restore their respective countries to ancient glories.Brimming with rare footage, historical locations and expert narration "Hitler and Mussolini" is a historical epic that reveals brutal victories, evil ambitions and a final descent into History's unescapable abyss.
