Produced right after the Red Army threw out the Germans in 1944, this stunning epic of gritty combat action is a most gripping battle documentary.
Drawing upon footage from 19 Soviet cameramen -and made under the guidance of Soviet director Stalin laureate V.N. Beliaev – they capture the tumultuous Eastern Front in many different angles and views, bringing vividly to life the mighty struggle of war between Nazi and Red Armies.
The film is also a searing visual record of both the grisly Nazi atrocities uncovered by the Red Army on its liberation of the city plus the gruesome deaths of enemy soldiers juxtaposed and ably presented via cinema montage. The raw reality of war – combat not to be missed!
