I haven't checked myself regarding the length but it is a port of a PC game that is already released, so if you're on the fence or want to work out the length, metacritic/google will be your friends!

I had a lecture on this last year which tbh I didn't pay as much attention on as I should have as this is really interesting event in world history and radically important even today. Will definitely give this a go.

I'm still playing, but I'm pretty sure it's a self-contained game. I've played 10 chapters so far and there are 19 according to GameCenter achievements.

It's episodic indeed, with this first part entitled Black Friday.
