"This is one of the first WWII documentaries that really show the mistake that Hitler made by invading Stalins Russia. I'm not good with words but no one else had written a review for it. Sorry. But if you like War documentaries watch this, it's great."
A great disappointment

"Besides the film being poorly mastered (the image shakes so much
that gives us the impression that the DVD was mastered inside a lifeboat in the middle of the ocean ), it was made during wartime by the US Government. The DVD then tells the story from the "official point of view" and, of course, ignores all the new evidences that were discovered/unclassified since then.
If you want a comprehensive look on what actually happened on Russia and WWII as a whole, you must then order titles such as "The World at War" narrated by SIR Lawrence Olivier. If you expect this documentary to be as good as National Geographic's comprehensive approach on the Battle of Midway (6 stars-"The battle FOR Midway" ), forget it."
Great Battles of World War II: Battle of Russia

"The documentary was good but it was very one sided. It was made prior to the U.S. knowing exactly what kind of leader Stahlin was. As a result it is more like a propaganda film then a depiction of the reality of the war in Russia which was a blood bath between two dictators. On a positive note it had some excellent battle footage."
Great DVD Especially at this Price

"If you like WWII action then do get this. It was apparently made during WWII, sometime after the defense of Stalingrad, about 1943. It is well done with a lot of action scenes. There is a degree of war-time motivation but it adds to the story. If you like WWII movies then this is another one to add to your collection."
