Synopsis

WWII: The Russian Front features 8 original episodes from The Unknown War, a 20 part landmark television documentary series about the Soviet struggle against - and ultimate victory over - the Nazi war machine. Hosted and narrated by Academy Award winner Burt Lancaster, this sprawling series features rare and stunning footage recorded by Soviet camera crews on the front lines, most of it unseen since its original broadcast over 30 years ago. From the June 22, 1941, invasion of the Soviet Union to "The world's greatest tank battle" in 1943, the devastating battles in the air, at sea and on land are detailed with astonishing images. These eight episodes of heroism, savagery and suffering from what the Russians call 'The Great Patriotic War" will shed new light on the Red Army's massive contribution to the Allies' defeat of Hitler in WWII.
