The complete story of the largest military confrontation in history.
When Adolf Hitler declared his intentions to invade Russia in 1941 he proclaimed: "We have only to kick in the door and the whole rotten structure will come crashing down. Yet four years later as the Red Army pushed into Berlin to signal the final days of World War II, Hitler s belief that Russia would buckle had long since been shattered.
The intervening years had witnessed the largest military confrontation in history, as Hitler s forces did battle with Joseph Stalin s Red Army in the theatre of conflict known as the Eastern Front.
The battles fought between the two sides, from Stalingrad to Leningrad, Kursk and Brest, arguably shaped the outcome of World War II more than any other.
Told from a Russian perspective, this incredible 10 DVD collection provides a fascinating insight into the war that took place on the Eastern Front.
Using rarely seen footage from the Russian archives and testimonies from those who experienced the conflict first hand, Discovery Civilization presents a detailed account of the war that was characterised by unprecedented ferocity, wholesale destruction, mass deportations and immense loss of life.
