National Geographic – Objective Baku (2015)

Objective Baku

The film provides a totally new approach to the history of WWII, looking through the prism of oil. The documentary also features some unique video snapshots of the WWII. The battles have been shot in a totally new format – restored color film.After just six weeks of fighting, German fuel reserves are deeply sapped. Hitler is well aware of Germany’s weakness in this area: he does not possess the necessary oil resources to win the war, he needs to find oil quickly and focuses his attention on one specific country: the Soviet Socialist Republic of Azerbaijan, part of the Soviet Union. Its capital city, Baku, is the world’s number one oil producer and becomes a prey that Hitler needs to capture as quickly as possible, in order to establish his Reich. But the Soviets and the Allies are dead set on stopping him, even if this means wiping the city off the map. It is clear that whoever controls its production will be in pole position to win the war.
