This is a 12 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on World War II - Hitler's Nero Decree. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
By 1945 everything was falling apart for the Nazi regime. Most of the conquered areas in the Soviet Union and Western Europe had been recaptured from the Nazis’. The Wehrmacht’s last gambit in the west, the Ardennes Offensive, better known as the Battle of the Bulge had failed with the loss of hundreds of precious air¬craft, tanks and upwards of 100,000 killed, missing/captured, or wounded.
As the Soviet Army approached the Nazi capital and epicenter of the tottering regime from the east and American units from the west neared the Elbe River, 60 miles south of Berlin, Adolf Hitler issued his “Nero Decree” on March 19, 1945. The “Nero Decree,” called for the complete destruction of Germany’s infrastructure. The approaching enemy would thus find nothing but “scorched earth.”
The presentation covers the following:
Hitler’s Clear Order
The Monuments Men
Decree Never Implemented
The Decree (cont.)
