"The Nazi Plan" was shown as evidence at the International Military Tribunal in Nuremberg on December 11, 1945. It covers the activities and policies of the Nazi Party in Germany from 1921 to 1944, particularly as reflected in the speeches of Adolf Hitler and the pageantry associated with the Party. The four-hour film was compiled by Budd Schulberg and other military personnel, under the supervision of Navy Commander James Donovan. The compilers took pains to use only German source material, including official newsreels and other German films (1919-45). It was put together for the US Counsel for the Prosecution of Axis Criminality and the US Office of the Chief Counsel for War Crimes. The film was received in evidence as IMT exhibit USA-167.

The film consists of four parts:
Part I: The rise of the NSDAP, 1921-1933
Part II: Acquiring totalitarian control of Germany, 1933-1935
Part III: Preparation for wars of aggression, 1935-1939
Part IV: Wars of aggression, 1939-1944
