In 1941, Nazi Germany, seemingly near invincible in its military might despite its failure to break the UK in the Battle of Britain, makes one of its most disastrous military moves. Despite the danger of a two front war and the existence of a non-aggression pact, Hitler orders the full scale invasion of the Soviet Union. This series explores the reasons for this undertaking, its vicious nature on both sides and the general series of events of the bloodiest theater of the war that would ultimately turn the tide in the fight against the Third Reich.Written by

Well directed with excellent interviews and footage. I found it amazing how good the interviewed witnesses looked, some 55 years later. All witnesses had photos of themselves from the era.
Only problem is, there are maybe two episodes missing. Episode three ends with the Nazis surrendering at Stalingrad in February 1943. Episode four begins in June of 1944. What happened during those 16 intervening months ?? No mention of Kursk. No discussion of how the Russians clawed there way 1000 miles to the border of Germany. Episode four is mostly wrap up and discussion of war crimes and aftermath, very little detail on the military campaign.
