The Battle Against Rome
This documentary portrays one of the most devastating battles of ancient times: the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest, which played a decisive role in shaping modern-day Europe. It was the worst defeat ever suffered by the Roman Empire: 30,000 men cut down in the forests of Germania, betrayed by Arminius, a man the Romans had trained and trusted. The ancient Roman-Germanic world is brought to life by CGI technology, gritty battle scenes and powerful dialogues.
S01:E01 - Part 1: Arminius: Traitor or Hero?
Since the 15th century, Arminius has been glorified as a German national hero. But who was Hermann The Cheruscan under whom Germanic tribes defeated three Roman legions at the Teutoburg Forest in 9 AD? Where did he come from? And how did he betray the Romans under General Varus so they never again attempted to conquer Germanic territory east of the Rhine River? Part 1 of this documentary sheds light on the exciting life of Arminius telling the thrilling story that led to the Varian Disaster.
S01:E02 - Part 2: Battle of the Teutoburg Forest
How could lightly armed Germanic tribes defeat heavily armed Romans in the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest that took place in the fall of 9 AD? Until today, historians try to unravel why as many as 30,000 Roman soldiers, along with countless slaves and families, died in those three days of bloody butchery. Using state-of-the-art 3D animation and new scientific findings, Part 2 of Battle for Germania reconstructs what happened 2,000 years ago and how Arminius lured the Romans into a deadly trap.
