Dan Carlin admitted to be on a second take of the show, with show 16, about the Nazis. He was aware that when discussing the almost incomprehensible success of the Nazi raise to power he nearly slid into a talk of admiration. In the second take he managed to prevent that impression perfectly. Yet, he also managed at the same time, to analyze to person of Adolf Hitler and how this loser of a man, turned into the leader of a whole nation. His representation seems very convincing and succeeds in coherently explain the person of Hitler, as well as his ideas, ranging from the eugenetics, to the antisemitism, to the extreme nationalism and the way he lead Germany and the world into disaster. Very good show.
