Description by E1 Entertainment Distribution:
On June 22nd 1941 three German Army Groups launched a surprise attack on Soviet Russia. The most barbaric and brutal struggle in history was about to be played out to the death. History is always written by the victors, but this documentary focuses on the other side of the coin. This 3 DVD and book set shows the war in Russia from the German experience, a powerful study of that titanic conflict as seen through contemporary German newsreels and told in the words of the men who fought and died for Hitler. Each DVD traces the fate of the three army troops which began the campaign and follows the course of this vicious campaign as the optimism of Barbarossa inexorably rolls on.
