Watch it with the sound turned off

"There's some good footage here, although not much new for anyone who's seen other documentaries on the Russian front. The numerous errors really start to become irritating after a while though. Not only factual and historical errors, but even basic geography, such as: [paraphrase] "The Soviet North front would attack through the Balkans [?] and defend Leningrad." How about the "Ju-88 Stuka?" Or "the Panzer III had a top speed of 18 mph?" Who edits this stuff? The anachronistic use of footage is also extremely annoying, although fairly common in WWII documentaries, such as showing Tiger tanks or Henschel 129s while talking about Barbarossa. For the price it's not bad if you want to see some historical war footage, but if you want accuracy this isn't the one."
You should watch the footage

"The footage is astonishing. I watched a lot documentaries before. About 30-40% of this one was unknown to me, something new. The episodes with the tank's top shoot out clean from the tank's body got stuck in my mind. My uncle was a T-34 tank driver at WW2. He got through such incidents twice, losing the rest of crue comrades.
About commentary: are you watching this for a commentary? Trying to get a deep knowledge from the film? Better read the books and enjoy the picture."

"Incredible footage. I thought I was pretty familiar with film footage from the Eastern Front but I saw a lot of material on this video that I had never seen before. Fantastic program. I caught a number of minor errors. In some cases footage did not match the historical period it was illustrating. That happens. No big deal in my opinion."

"These two DVDs are very informative and they contain much information that is not generally known to the average person"
