As part of History Channel’s History 100, the network has announced a groundbreaking new documentary from Randy Barbato and Fenton Bailey entitled Axis of Addicts.
This documentary will explore the origin, impact and lasting effects of the state- sponsored drug use that helped build – and eventually burn – the Third Reich.
New sources of information, including never-before-seen historical records, reveal the extent of the Nazi party’s reliance on drugs to power their war effort (Deadline).
Axis of Addicts is produced by World of Wonder. Fenton Bailey, Randy Barbato, Tom Campbell and Jason Sklaver are executive producers for World of Wonder. Melinda Toporoff is executive producer for History.
The documentary will air alongside The History 100, “an ambitious new strand compromised of 100 films focusing on the most compelling historical events of the last 100 years.”
