Murder and savagery are part of the brutal workings of Adolf Hitler's dreaded SS as revealed through the lives of brothers Karl and Helmut Hoffman. SS officer Helmut is assigned the task of picking out casualties from Jewish concentration camp inmates. Their corpses will be dressed in Polish uniforms to help provoke the Nazi invasion of Poland and the outbreak of World War I1. At a family dinner Mr. and Mrs. Hoffman relate their shock about an old neighbour who was dragged off in the middle of the night. Helmut rages, One silly old man! If you had any idea of what they are doing to tens of thousands of people! Meanwhile, Karl's outspoken political views get him shipped off to the Russian front to fight at Stalingrad, where his entire company is decimated. As the Reich deteriorates, the entire Hoffman family will be dragged down into a spiral of death, tragedy and retribution.
Hitler's SS features an all-star supporting cast, including Academy Award winner Jose Ferrer, Carroll Baker, Tony Randall and distinguished character actor David Warner.
