From an enthralling narration to TONS of live footage, this is a great episode to watch and overall a great series! Of course, I'm biased as a bit of a history buff, but nevertheless, if you prefer visualization, this is one for you.

I have just watched this on the Yesterday channel. I just happened to watch it by accident although I have enjoyed similar programs on the Yesterday channel.

I found it very interesting. I think people tend to under-estimate the war in the East and concentrate on British and American achievements.

This program re-addresses that balance by showing one of the crucial episodes in the war on the Eastern Front.

I think that the Germans like to think that they lost to the Americans, rather than admitting that they lost to people that they considered to be sub-human.
