Battle for the Beetle - Volkswagen History The untold story of the post-war battle for Adolf Hitler's giant Volkswagen factory and the Porsche-designed car that became an icon for generations around the globe. The Volkswagen was the showpiece of the achievements of Adolf Hitler's Third Reich. Backed by the FÃ¼hrer himself, it struck fear into the hearts of all who owned and managed Europe's car industry. Designed to "out-Ford Ford", the Beetle would dwarf their efforts with its low price and high production.
