The Eastern Front experienced the viciousness of war on a scale of unimaginable horror and brutality. The bloodiest and most savage fighting took place in Stalingrad between August 1942 and February 1943. Stalin's city on the Volga had military significance for Hitler. It carried the name of his enemy and therefore had to be destroyed. The ensuing battle sealed the fates of hundreds of thousands of soldiers and civilians and marked the turning point of World War 11. It was the beginning of the end for Nazi Germany. In their 3 part 16:9 HDTV, documentary filmmakers Sebastian Dehnhardt, Christian Deick and Jorg Mullner reveal new historical facts while touching the emotions of their audience with new, moving eyewitness accounts and confessions from some of the last survivors.
Filmed from both the German and Russian perspective, the series contains footage shot by soldiers during the siege. The Russian achives opened their doors to the filmmakers, granting them exclusive access to previously unreleased material. The series also contains digitally restored archive film as well as 3-D animation to recreate the city of Stalingrad and plot the course of its destruction.
Originally broadcast in both Germany and Russia in slightly truncated editions, this Special Edition DVD contains all three Stalingrad documentaries including The ATTACK (54 min.), THE KESSEL (56 min.) and THE DOOM (55 min.) in their original uncut forms and a wealth of extra supplementary materials.
Inferior English dubbing aside, this documentary does present some good material and quite a lot of good footage.
This is done very well, emphasizing how a huge German Army Group (240,000 soldiers) were bottled up in Stalingrad and its surrounding suburbs and rural areas.
And as far as historical significance goes there is nothing more important than eyewitness and participant testimony.
I have been looking for a book or film that would get close to how it felt to be a German soldier trapped in Stalingrad. This is it. Read morePublished 4 months ago by mike l
